Finding Fall

Last week, of a Thursday evening (good things tend to happen on Thursday evenings, lately) I left from work and headed to Spearfish to visit Sassy and Wrigley and Joe. We were going to climb, but Sass and Wrigley and I decided we were too tired and besides it's fall and the day called for a slow hike and awareness and photos and time for easy conversation.

So we made a plan (ice cream, hike, pumpkin lattes) and headed to Devil's bathtub.

I love this trail in the fall.
I do.

This is Wrigley about to get in trouble for not coming when called the first time...
A girl and her dog:

Sung to the tune of "There she goes..."

Just Wrigley...

We ran into a puppy named Zeus and the only thing Zeus wanted in the whole world was to be friends with Wrigley.

Wrigley tolerated him until he tried to hump her

and then she was all "I'm not that kind of girl" and snubbed him.

Can't blame a guy for trying.

Wrigley was having a great time until Sassy threw her in the creek.
This is what we call a "bitch face":
 But she shook it off.

There were so many lovely things to see:

Really, guys, the Black Hills are just one of the best places to live, indisputably:


These are the facts, and they are undisputed:

I love the look on her face, especially since I know what she was talking about at the time...

 Friends and fall and pumpkin lattes on a Thursday evening - some of the finer things of life.

It was nice to just be outside and not doing anything extreme for a change, having nothing to do and no place to be and no schedule and no challenge. Just to be, with a friend, finding fall.

Let's not forget the simple things this fall.

It quickly slips by.
Catch hold of all you can.
