A Sunday Drive! I love Fall!

We started a tradition a few years ago that on October conference Sunday we take a drive in the mountains to see the fall colors and listen to conference on the radio. So last Sunday Craig, Leon, Nikki and I grabbed some drinks and snacks and of course our cameras and settled in for a beautiful drive. Usually its up Cedar Canyon but this year Leon prompted us to take a drive up to Kolob and go the backway to Cedar City. I am so glad we did, the different colored leaves were so pretty!

Ahhh, Nikki and Craig, so sweet!

It was great to have Leon with us. He shared precious memories of earlier trips he'd taken up there with Norma Jean. Told us about the many trails along the road. He really knew his way around up there.

Two of my favorite people. Nikki and Craig

Below are some scenic pictures Nikki or I took.

The leaves are falling all around,

Red, yellow, orange and brown.

Twirling, swirling to the ground,

Look how many leaves I've found!

Nikki took this picture. This guy was standing in the road and wouldn't move. Pretty brave or stupid, he looked straight into the camera as if he were posing. He doesn't look very happy that we are in his neighborhood!
