Glorious October Colours

It was a sunny albeit cold day yesterday so we decided to take a hike in one of our local parks Mono Cliffs. We had a fun time taking pictures, collecting leaves for one son's school project, and watching the snow drift down around us. The snow wasn't supposed to be part of the deal but it was better than rain.

We hiked for a couple hours before I realized I'd seen particular landmarks before. Recently. Somehow we'd managed to make a complete circle and missed the path to the the exit. We all did an about-face and headed back in the right direction. The kids were cold and miserable. We were...well, the same. Luckily, there's are several great coffee shops that sell great hot chocolate. The kids were appeased. We still had to go grocery shopping...

We have one more thing to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. It stopped snowing! At least for today. We decided not to go hiking today - well, not for 2 1/2 hours anyway - instead, I think we'll have a lazy day full of turkey, potatoes, gravy, and pumpkin pie.

Tomorrow it's back to work....
