Change o' Season
One thing that we look forward to every year, as we get to this stage of autumn, is the opening of our sight lines into the hollow across the way. We can see and hear a stretch of Beaver Run and it will stay that way now until spring. Off in the distance is Tanners Ridge. (This where we had the beaver pond a couple of years ago, if you're interested, just click on the label to read more about that...)
From the brick terrace, I can hear and sometimes see the small herd we have crossing through the hollow, uphill from the stream. They probably come back down to the stream about a half mile away, deeper in the woods. They are shy this time of year, and the reports that echo through the hills tell you why - it's hunting season now through the end of the month.
