Beautiful November Ride

 Wednesday Gilly and I went for a ride, 2 hours, we visited the neighbor, rode down the road to the next township. I didn't go too far as old Lucy was with us. At 12 she still wants to go with us but can't last as long as she used to, so we go slow and don't go far. These pictures are when we were on our way back home.
Gilly checking out his shadow.

Gilly and me in shadow, I wish the weather would just stay like it was then. So beautiful, just cool enough for a light jacket and air so clear and the sky so blue! My favorite time of year.

Looking across our hay field to the back hay field and the shed beyond. Gil and I ride back there a lot, crossing creeks and riding in the creek. Gilly is not to keen on walking in the creeks but he is learning.

This picture should have been above but now I can't move it; anyway this is an old road that Gil and I ride on. A very steep rocky old township road that no one takes care of but it's still an open road. With all the rain we have had of late I haven't ridden up there, pretty muddy and slick.
Yesterday was a beautiful day but I didn't get to ride went to Stanleyville Stables to their open house, wish I had taken Gilly over just to ride around and enjoy the weather!
Today is another gorgeous day but we are going to do some work in the house I think, boo, I would rather be riding!
I love fall!!!

I love Fall too. We haven't been having my favorite type of fall weather though. Your riding spaces look beautiful. Wish I was there where you are instead of here. Glad you had such a nice ride.

Glad you’ve had some nice weather we’ve got a lot of rain where I am. The photos you took look so nice and sunny, great last photo too. I hope you get some more rides in.

Looks like your fall is about to end by the looks of the trees. That was a perfect day for a ride!

I prefer summer...we have perfect weather up here in the mountains. It's always 15-20 degrees cooler than down in the valley. This time of year we have high bitter winds and everything is brown, dead, and dry. Summer is green, colorful, sunny and beautiful! I miss summer!

I'm glad you were able to get out and ride and enjoy your own beautiful weather. And that last photo is precious! Should be a greeting card.
