Last weekend was probably the peek of fall color in our area. A cold front has now moved in and many of the trees are mostly bare. I took advantage of the beautiful weather and snapped some "tree" photos. I am thinking about getting the photo above put on canvas. I love the white trunk, the fall colored leaves and the blue sky combination.

On Friday we got to pick up the kids from school. It was a beautiful fall day, so we hopped into the "Danger Ranger" and drove to the little creek behind our house. We wanted the kids to see how dry the creek was after the long, hot summer. As we were walking along the creek bed, looking for interesting rocks, I spotted this arrowhead. What a beautiful bit of craftsmanship! It is the first Indian relic we have found on our property. The rest of the afternoon I found myself hunched over looking for more treasures. On Saturday it rained more than two inches and the creek bed was no longer dry. The arrowhead sparked an interesting discussion about how it got in the creek and who had made it. A little dab of history right in our backyard!
