Yellow Leaves, Deer, and Wolf Tracks

First of all…oh, man. How did it get to be the tenth of November already? While the time flies by I’m over here thinking that all the fun things my husband and I did on the weekends were surely just a week or two ago, right? No, Beth, that’s not how time works.
These pictures were taken a month ago. We went on a several-miles-long walk in the woods while the fall colors were at their peak. (Everything was yellow this year, it seemed.)





There’s a deer in the picture below, if you can spot her.



I’ve seen bear tracks in mud before, but this was the first wolf track for me.


I’ve seen a wolf exactly once in my life, and it was years ago. It was maybe six in the morning and my husband and I were on our way to visit family in Wyoming. On the highway about an hour from the house, there was a dog-thing on the side of the road.
It was a coyote.
About a mile ahead, a very big dog-thing was running down the side of the road. It was a huge wolf, just running down the shoulder of the road.
Wisconsin is weird.
See you later!

  1. What gorgeous fall pictures. The leaves are beautiful. We've had so many consecutive gray, wet days that we missed the peak colors. Even though a lot of our leaves have already dropped, there's still some color left and, like you said, mostly golden. Now that the sunshine and blue skies have returned (yay!), I need to grab my camera before even more leaves drop.Oh, yes, I see the hidden deer, but have never seen wolf tracks. And I wish the coyotes that moved into our area a few years ago would move out again, but I guess that's not going to happen.

    1. We had some weird weather this fall, a few cold snaps followed by a lot of heat, so the leaves weren't that great. Mostly yellow, with very few reds, oranges, or pink. Coyotes can be a real pain. They don't bother much by me because of the bajillion acres of forest surrounding the area, but they aren't pleasant in other areas. My tiny town still has a noon whistle that blows every day, and during the summer, the coyotes howl right along with it most days.
