Halfway up

This is halfway up from the bottom of the vale where the Cowhorn Creek flows.  Those are two storey houses, so one gets a sense of how far the creek has cut down from the top.  These houses are almost invisible in the spring and summer because of the underbrush and leaves.

More evidence of squirrels

It's really amazing how well a grey animal disappears into the brown leaves.  It's actually easier to see the one on the grey tree than it is to see the one on the ground.

Skywatch Friday

I took a walk through Vale Cemetery.  It was one of those cold, bright afternoons and the wind had that bite that presages the full onset of winter.  There are often a gang of crows here, and this afternoon they were raucous - they'd land in one tree, call to each other and then fly to another tree, repeatedly.

A group of photobloggers post a photo of their skies each Friday - it's called Skywatch Friday. Click the link to see photos from round the world.

Tree... path?

It's not really clear from the photo, but this tree is laying down, almost horizontally, hanging out over the gorge where the Cowhorn Creek flows through Vale.  Someone likes to walk out to the end and hang out above the creek, and apparently to make it easier, nailed some scrap boards to the limbs.  It's not really a tree house, although maybe it's the foundation?  I really do have to wonder about the computer keyboard just left and above centre.

Evidence of squirrels

All over the gravel path that goes round the pond, there are acorns.  And not just under the oak trees - they are really everywhere.  The squirrels scamper about chasing each other but there really are a lot.

Late afternoon in Vale

I decided to take a walk through Vale and the late afternoon sun really brought out the colour here on the north side of the valley.  Yes, it's brown, but what a brown!
