bear sign, hoofenwoofers, fun with fungi, and a Mendocino sunset

Friday, mental health day.  Only one more essay to write (the value of literature) and a critique in ceramics class and I am finished with the semester.  Turned in my final Statistics project on Wednesday.  I am so done with that.

So, a walk in the woods up at Marty’s place, hunting mushrooms for fun, and the dogs to keep me from getting lost.

^This^ is what bear shit looks like after it’s been rained on a few times.

Lots of acorns underfoot, attracting the bears.

That would be Annabelle.

Handsome Hoolie, checking for squirrels.

A forest of ferns below the spring and beside the creek.

Mushrooms are everywhere.

We’ve had a lot of rain so far this year, some snow too.

There’s something up there….if only we could climb.

Mother Nature does her own decorating.

The dogs know the way home.

And then, a few hours later, we are treated to a stunning sunset:

Sometimes I think I have died and gone to heaven.

    Nice pictures! I like your dogs’ names, especially Annabelle.

      Annabelle is a sweetie, and is she pretty or what? Love her profile. She likes to bark at me whenever I put on my shoes and then she gets between my legs and the chair when I am trying to tie my shoes ’cause she’s a nut and she loves her walks as much as I do.
