Fall Peak: A walk around the lake

Last weekend was absolutely gorgeous, sunny and in the 70's on this peak fall weekend! Bill and I took a walk around the lake. While taking the trail between our road and the road on the other side of the lake, we spotted a young doe that had not caught our scent. She got within 20ft. of us before she caught a glimpse of us and headed into the tall brush. As we left the trail and onto the road, here she came with her Mom and another young doe in toe. Mom gave the signal and they ran across the road, but not before I got a couple of pictures. Here are some pictures from our walk around our small lake, which is only about 1 1/2 miles.

Just found your blog this evening. A dream come true for you no doubt.
I share your dream; a cabin on a lake a thousand miles from anywhere. Be still my heart.
I'll be visiting, your blog that is, frequently.
Best of everything.

You have such a beautiful setting for your cabin!

Thanks Shelley, I'm not sure if my setting is as nice as yours. Your lake looks even more quiet than ours. :)

I live on a big pond and every once in a while get a loon like duck not sure if they are loons or or at least Oregon's version of a loon...but we get tons of ducks and geese now I just wish I had the colors you all have ! Take care I'll be back ....
