Fall is coming

We loaded up the car on Friday afternoon and drove up to the U.P. for the Labor Day weekend. Libby usually passes out cold when were traveling, and this trip was no exception. She wakes up in the home stretch, starts sniffing the piney air like crazy, and then goes non-stop for the rest of the weekend. She's so excited to be there that we can count on her to wake us up the first night at about 4:00 a.m., to go play.

As we drive up north, urban gives way to rural and rural gives way to the great outdoors. Every so often I caught a flash of orange or red in the road ahead. What first registered as roadside hazard warnings turned out to be small trees that had already taken on fall colors.

I spent Saturday knitting w/my MIL. She was working on a sweater for one of the great-grandkids, and I managed to finish my mom's birthday present (hurray!). So come back later for a picture of that FO and snapshots of the northwoods heading into autumn.
