It's getting much colder around these parts. The leaves are finishing up their color changes and many of them have already fallen. Thanksgiving and Christmas are coming up though! Before it got too cold we went on a afternoon hike through the Skyline Drive yesterday. Everything was still so beautiful. This was Claire's very fist hike and she got to hitch a ride on Daddy's back the whole way. :) Somehow between trying to keep up with a mostly male hiking group and replacing Claire's hat for the umpteenth time I actually got a few pictures. As another season is coming to a close I get reminded again of just how fast time goes.
Claire patted Daddy on the back and gibbered to him most of the way.
The sun was gorgeous peeking through the trees!

And last but not least, my FAVORITE picture of the day!! They are such buddies. :)
