Hello my friends, it’s been a few weeks since I shared a ‘Tuesday’s Tour’ post with you.
One night after work we decided to grab a bucket of KFC and head up American Fork Canyon. We wanted to catch the Autumn splendor before it was too late. Why not enjoy an outdoor picnic while we’re at it?
(this one was taken just before dusk)
Well, let me tell you; 50 million other people (exaggerating of course) had the same idea.
The canyon was packed! So much so that you could not stop and take some of the gorgeous shades of red and orange that were in the lower part of the canyon. Still there were some beautiful sites!
I am always amazed at the beauty of this glorious earth!
I loved this pop of gold amongst the green pines as the sun started to set.
Remember, this was in the evening. Can you imagine how brilliant these would be with the sun shining on them?
There’s gold in them there hills! Why is it always so fun saying that? lol! Not sure what that puff of what looks like smoke is.
50 Shades of gold.
I love moss so I had to share this photo.
(me taking a picture of our daughter, Kylee taking a picture)
Kylee decided to have a little fun. We thought it was a cute photo. Apparently another lady did also. A complete stranger took a picture of her as well.
Golden Oldies. Hee-hee!
Okay now prepare yourself for what I’m about to show you.
Let me set the scenario.
I saw a large field of golden foliage.
Me to hubby: Video me while I frolic (skip) through this field. *In my mind this was going to be all “Sound of Music’ like. You know, the hills are alive?
Kylee: I’ll frolic (skip) with you.
Before you view this video let me tell you three things I learned:
1. NEVER try frolicking (skipping) in flip flops (especially in a bumpy field)
2. 61 year old chubby ladies don’t frolic! And they certainly can’t jump up and click their hills.
3. If you try to frolic, come prepared for the laughter that will certainly follow and wear Depends!
Telling it like it is!
At least the Autumn Foliage didn’t disappoint.
