Stella with her backpack

The dogmonster turned 1 this past weekend, and finally got the backpack we’ve been wanting to get her all year. The day was spent hiking, foraging for mushrooms, and enjoying the company of some good friends from work (and enjoying the first real day off I’ve had for three long months). It was glorious.

The first visible snow of the year for me, against an amazingly blue sky.

I loved the way the bright yellow trees reflected on the lake.
