Driving through Autumn, Part Two

Computer recovery continues as Carbonite restores my documents and thousands of photographs.   Worth every cent.

In the meantime, autumn marches inexorably to that time when I'll need the studded snow tires mounted on my vehicles, and it is not a chore I enjoy.  As I write, the wild, wet, windy weather of last evening has morphed into an eerie stillness with rain falling straight down, mixed in with some suspiciously large and individually-seen white drops that I don't care to identify.

There's a fire in the woodstove, a mug of hot chocolate by my side, and the Seattle Seahawks game  soon to begin, assuming those large white drops don't obscure the satellite signal.

Time to go back a week or two and continue our drive through autumn.

An evergreen that turns yellow?   I'll have to check this out.

Swans at Tern Lake

Fishing on Kenai Lake

And home to my driveway.

Let's do this again.   Stay tuned.


  1. Lovely Jeanne!!!! I am so excited to see these pictures, fall has been so gorgeous, and the warmth and wet has inspired me to buy peonies to plant. I also found a few tiny Larch trees, I love these trees. Irene

  2. As always great pictures. Create a backup system if you don't have one already.

  3. Gorgeous photos of your world! It's just the snow I would have problems with. I'm such a wimp! Our maybe 1-2 weeks of snow are all I'm willing to put up with.
