The Ranch: November 2020 Walkabout

Autumn has arrived with a vengeance at The Ranch.   Daytime temperatures are mid 50's F (13-18 C) and the nights are 24 to the mid-30's (-4 to 12 C).  It is dark by 1730 (Amazingly so.  Funny how it being dark makes it feel so much later).  So what better time for a walkabout?

The sunlight finally looks like Autumn:



Looking back towards the Lower Meadow.




The leaves are finally turning and falling:



A disturbed stone in the middle of the road and bear scat.  I have no idea what happened, but it seems like there is a story here:


The last blackberries of Autumn have withered:


The creek is running a little higher than last time.  Winter and rain is on the way:


It is so nice to see Autumn again.

    1. Glen, we had bees at one time. Currently a company comes and drops their bees there for a month or so prior to the pollination season. They pay in honey, so we always have some.

      Oh, I have plans friend. I just need to get there.

  2. I'm fresh off a week spent on the farm riding around and through the fields cutting thorny locust sprouts and repairing tile risers. It was a good week to be alive and forget about life for awhile. I wrote it up in a blog to be posted in a week or two.

    1. Ed, that sounds like a great way to spend a week honestly. One thing I do like about going back to the Ranch is I can (literally) shut the rest of the world out. It is kind of refreshing.
