I like to be positive and count my blessings as much as possible, so this is a "fall themed count your blessings" comment. I work in Calgary which is about a 20-30 minute commute each way. It is an easy drive as most of it is highway and not a lot of fighting city traffic. In the morning I take the main highway as it is faster. Coming home after work I take the "backroad" through our western foothills and ranch lands. It is just a beautiful drive and I appreciate it every day. This week I saw two amazing things, and of course no camera with me...
First I saw a huge buck with the biggest antlers running through a field, pausing and then jumping the fence to my right. It was so graceful and effortless, and I thought it was one of the most beautiful things I had ever seen.
Then the next day it was a warm sunny day and as I was coming up a hill I could see a silhouette of several people in their cowboy hats on horses. As I approached the yellow field and the blue sky made this a picture perfect view, and it would have been a stunning picture. I slowed and could see it was 4 young girls on their horses practicing barrel racing in their field.
I really don't care that it is a longer drive as the beauty of this drive is so worth it. There are mountain views, and right now with the blue skies and the golden fields it is spectacular.
Enjoy the beauty of your fall.
