It's an autumn palette over at the Colour Q this week. I found some cute photos of my kids out hiking with me a few weeks ago. This page is called "My Backyard", because it's only a 5 minute walk from my house to the trail head. I live in an area that is at the forests edge of a large city. We get lots of wildlife in our yard including bears, coyotes, cougars, racoons and of course skunks and squirrels.
