How absolutely amazing is it to go from searing hot, swamp-like weather to cool, calm, breezy and beautiful? Live in St. Louis from July to October during any given year, and you’ll know. Fortunately, we’re in fall mode, and in true fall fashion, the weather is fabulous.
Yesterday we finally got a chance to get out there and enjoy it. With The Bear in tow, we drove out to Babler State Park in Wildwood, MO and walked one of the wooded trails. While we took in all the surrounding greens, golds and oranges, The Bear kept his nose to the ground 98 percent of the time, soaking up the world via sniffer.
Of course, I snapped a few photos along the way. Makes me realize that we need to do this kind of thing more often. And that fall needs to stick around for a few more months out of the year. Winter, consider this your warning.
