Beautiful Fall

We started off with the intent to find and ID different fall deciduous leaves. A simple task that led us to a beautiful nature hike around the community college campus trails on a wonderful fall afternoon. The sun came out after a morning rain. Everything was fresh and clean but not too wet.

 Blueberry loved finding leaves and putting them in her paper sack.

 Daddy and Blueberry had fun throwing leaves up in the air and watching them fall.

 Daddy found a little salamander on the forest floor. 
He gently picked it up so we could get a good look at it.
He was brown on top and bright orange on the bottom.

The little guy warmed up on our hands for a bit before we let him free on the ground.

How Fun! We have found those salamanders before they are Rough Skinned Newts/Oregon Newts. ;)
