When I opened the grill tonight, a mouse jumped out of a nest of leaves! It escaped, so I lit the grill. While it warmed up, it smelled just like the leaf burning piles of my youth . It reminded me of fall on West Waldheim Road during the 50's. Sigh!! I shot the photos above and on the flickr photostream as I grilled chicken breasts for this evening's dinner. A beautiful fall evening over the ravine.
Last week I took a walk along the Allegheny River in Sharpsburg. It was a beautiful early fall morning. The trees on the opposite mountain were just beginning to change and many summer wildflowers were still in bloom. More images in the flickr photostream.
