Lake breaks

A couple of side-trips to check out Lake Padden's fall finery, on the edge of sunset, really paid off with photo ops today. Here's just a couple.

Notice how the kid perked up in this last shot when I suggested we head back.

Meadow diversion

Just a quick off-trail photo-op while taking advantage of a break in today's showers. A week ago, this meadow was golden brown. Now, a September tease of green is the theme.

Fall trim

Time again for Casey's seasonal "makeover" at the barber shop. (OK, it's a pooch grooming salon, but what's in a name.) Here, the kid's favorite groomer, actually the only groomer he's ever had, Melissa, is applying the finishing touches. He was getting downright untidy and with rainy autumn just around the corner, he was becoming a debris magnet.

Just look at this guy, will you. He's obviously thrilled with the results, and loving the attention from his Mom and Melissa. 
Basking in the attention and ready for the trip home.
