Even though Summer has come to an end,
well not officially yet since Summer stretches to the 22nd...
But you get my point, right?!
We did another trip to the beautiful mountains.
My guys went hunting!
I came along for the first few days
and I must say I had fun.
I didn't actually hike through the woods with them,
I stayed at camp during the morning hunts
and then a few hours before the sunset we all went
to glass the hillsides in the SUV.
Such beautiful country up in them mountains.
I apologize for the ones that follow me on Instagram
as you have all ready seen most of these photos.
These beautiful flowers were right
outside my camper door.
In the woods, not an RV park or camp ground.
Pure bliss and in awe of God's Creation!
See this bird here, I'm not sure what kind it is
but let me tell you,
he dive bombed me every
time I had food in my hand.
I may or may not have screamed
and ran a few times.
So, finally my boys thought they'd just feed the birds
so they wouldn't go after me.
How very thoughtful!
This road was right near our camp,
I just love the thought
of how many have traveled down this road.
Beautiful pine trees and speckles of color
all the way down the bumpy road.
These little red berries are considered BEAR food
up here. Yes BEAR!! You heard me right!
Once I found out that there were BEARS,
I stayed very close to camp with my gun on my hip!!
My guys went and got wood for the camp fires
and my middle son comes back and says
"Guess what I saw?"
A BEAR CUB!!!
Not even 5 miles from my camp!
I tried to tell myself maybe he's like Yogi Bear.
He won't bother me, if I don't bother him.
Yep, it worked for awhile until I heard
their were hunters hunting bear
(including my oldest son)
All I can say is,
I walked around each tree around camp
and prayed for safety and proctection
for all of us!!
God never let's me down!!
I just love old trees!!
This pine tree was seeping sap.
Ooey and Gooey...
If only this tree could talk,
imagine the stories it could share.
My boys enjoying several rides
on the four wheelers!
Up and down and back again they went....
So much fun!
I'm heading back to the mountains this weekend
to help haul stuff home...
So far only a few shots, for those elk are quick!
I personally think Archery
season is a hard hunt...
Thank goodness we only have 3 more trips
planned for this hunting season!!
So in the meantime...
I hope you all have a wonderful September!!
Thanks so much for stopping by....
