Loving Fall!

I've been sharing a few fall cards lately as I can't express enough how much I've been LOVING being back in South Dakota to enjoy this time of year.  Today, my hubby and I went for a drive through Spearfish Canyon in the Black Hills.  It was the perfect morning-- chilly, bright, and fresh!  Here are a few of my photos... I hope you enjoy! :)

I think God did some of His best work in So Dakota....so lovely of you to share these glimpses of His glorious creation. I can almost feel the crispness in the air; I really wish I could, it's hot and muggy here in so cal.
Hugs, sweet Jill!

Love these pictures! I've never been to SD this late in the year but growing up it was one of my Dad's favorite destinations for the family camping trip in mid- Aug. Been to the Black Hills many times. We used to camp at a place called the Rafter J Bar Ranch.

Your pictures are stunning! I love the colors of fall.

Glad you are able to visit. We have a beautiful country and these pictures prove how much beauty there is. Thanks so much for sharing!

Pictures are beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing. I love fall. It is one of my favorite seasons...but I also love winter, and spring. Summer too I guess, but in much smaller doses than the other seasons.

I agree the Black Hills are stunning. I'm in Western Nebraska, so if you ever offer classes or such please post it! Any excuse to get away to Rapid City sounds good to me!

Beautiful photos Jill, I too am enjoying the richness in the colour of leaves.

Many thanks!

Good Morning Patter!
Thank you so very much for sharing your Gorgeous morning view today! I needed that. Unfortunately, I do not have a view like that...as I look out my front window...All I see is my neighbors 18 wheeler parked in front. YUCK!!! He is a truck driver and my view reminds me of being at a truck stop! He is very sweet and he has to make a living so how can I judge or complain...but it is frustrating to have my morning sunrise and view hindered by a bill board truck. :(

Wow! What beautiful place. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for sharing...I'm originally from Sioux Falls so seeing some SD pics (even from the other side of the state) bring back many memories.

Kathy Humphrey said...

Oh my goodness!! Such beautiful scenery. I love fall and sure do wish I was up in the north where I could feel that cool crisp air.

Thanks for sharing these awesome pictures. You're as talented at photography as you are with the cardmaking/stamping/paper arts! Enjoyed these pics so very much, and I'm happy for you that you can be back home with your family. Hugs
