October 30am, 2011 - Sawnee Mountain
The now-weekly drive north to Sawnee Mountain is even prettier than last week.
Check out these trees!
(This picture if for you, Gaby.)
Sawnee, a famed, local indian.
He stands proudly under the oaks and maples.
We get to the park and find a carving that represents the wingspan of a blue heron, osprey, hawk, crow, blue jay, chicadee, and hummingbird.
Ella is between a crow and a hawk.
We build a little house (much littler than the one in the background).
Once we finally get to it, Ella runs on the trail.
The hills are slower-going.
After a while, Ella runs out of steam and walks sweetly with her mommy.
This trail has a tree house.
After a little while of playing, Ella is ready to run some more.
Sittin' on some logs.
We love the fall!
The drive home is past more beautiful, autumn hills.
