Wanna See What I Saw?

I did get out for that walk and it was wonderful. It's getting cold out! I needed a toque (my knitting of course) and a heavy sweatshirt. Next time a woolly sweater.

The salmon are spawning. This mostly means we see a lot of dead salmon on the shoreline. I have seen them charge up the creek, but only when I don't have a camera with me. They seem to know. I thought this guy was a goner.

But then he started thrashing around. Poor things. They look so beat-up and bedraggled by this point. Those guys are tough!

There are also lots of birds around these days (feasting on salmon suppers). More photos another day. Blogger is being pissy.

The photos are astoundingly beautiful! We don't seem to get a sky nearly that blue here, so seeing it in Phoenix was a treat. The color contrast of the golden leaves against it is especially lovely. That's the color that the wisteria leaves turn, in the arbor just outside the window here where I sit at the computer. My private little bit of fall. {VBG}

Tried to post last night and Blogger was still pissy.
