Steve and I went on a road trip to Algonquin Park last Saturday. It took 3hrs. one way to get there. The Sugar Maple trees were almost at their peek. Not many leaves on the ground yet , as you can see from these photos.
One day is not long enough to spend in such a vast area with so much to see and do. I in no way could ever take photos that would ever do justice to such a Beautiful Wilderness as Algonquin Park. We were only there for the day, and the time went by so quickly, and it was starting to get dark in the park around 6 p.m, so we headed back home through the park , this time heading east.
I hope you enjoyed a glimpse of Autumn in the park. Here is a link if anyone is interested in finding out more.
Have a wonderful weekend one and all.

It was a real battle to get my dear bro from Africa here to our little city from Chicago where he’d been holding some meetings with a pastor there who is also a very dear friend of ours. One of our other friends from North Carolina had some health issues arise and couldn’t make it so it’s been very interesting. None the less we get a breather come Saturday and hope to have the day with him which we are very excited about. Life hands you lemons…make lemonade!
Back to the fields..yes, that’s the title. Visiting the little stores in the tiny dot’s sometimes called towns here in Montana is something I actually enjoy. This seems like a blast from the past and somehow brings me real peace…seems like the shadow of better times…except there’s still today’s high prices. Going back to the cabin we find a different view of things. I treasure seeing similar things a different wayor maybe it’s just finding new joy in the familiar…I don’t know. I never tire of looking up the gentle hills to the big blue sky. Yeah, I’ve seen it before but it seems fresh and new every single year. The mercies of God are fresh and new each day…this seems to mirror that. This looks so much like the view we enjoyed when we owned land on the Stillwater River ourselves many years ago. The high points and low compliment each other out here. This is the land of emerald grass and purple mountains majesty. I can see what settlers of old must have treasured back in the day here. Not many animals to speak of this time though we did see a bear several yards away from the cabin we stayed in. Animals or not, I love this countryside! This land seems to take my troubles and cast them to the wind. Walk the fair weather road with meand let your troubles slip away. Nothing to hear but the quite babble of a hidden stream or far away screech of a Red Tail Hawk or faint knocking of a Wood Pecker. Sufficient are the evils of the day…let your burdens that may be tomorrow rest for now. There will be new mercies for the challenges of tomorrow.

Mr. and Mrs. Hays
I would like to wish you all a Happy Autumn,
For today ( Sept. 23d ) is the first day of Fall in our part of the world.
I came across this lovely Harvest Couple while driving on a Country Road the other day. It made me smile and I hope it will make you smile also.
I went for a walk along the Bay on the last day of summer, and I noticed that the tree tapestries are at a cross roads, and are beginning to change colors.
Also the Sumac Bushes are starting to turn red and orange.
Seems I wasn’t the only one out for a walk. This Beautiful Common Bronze colored Grackle must have been waiting on his flight. :)
Well that is it for now. Hope you all have a wonderful first day of Autumn.
xo Dianne :)
