Fall Is My Favorite Time of Year...

These aren't the best pictures of Fall but I'm doing a quick post this morning! Even tho it has been reaching almost 100 degrees here in the valley, Fall is still my favorite!! It's been a little cooler in the morning and I did get some Utah peaches (the best) I have been canning Utah peaches for 30 years now and it is just not Fall without those peaches! I love em'!!
Now of course we can't be in the White mtns for Fall much anymore, that is one of our favorite things to do...watching the leaves turn brilliant yellow and enjoy the crisp morning air!
We went to Chinle and monument valley I think last Fall... Sooo pretty! We stayed the night at Cameron... near the Grand Canyon! Such a beautiful time of year! Hope all of you are enjoying the cool changes where ever you may be...we certainly are here in the valley!
