Loving this weather

The last few days are why I think that fall is the best time of year in Virginia - clear, cool, sunny, low humidity. It's near perfect hiking weather that will only improve in the next few weeks as it gets cooler and the trees become more colorful.
Maya and Theo and I did a 6 mile hike the day
before we left for Asheville.

The only downside is that it gets dark earlier and earlier. I need to adjust my schedule to a split shift, where I work in the mornings, hike mid-day, and then go back to work for the late afternoon and evening.

I get some of the best pictures of Maya when she
is walking behind or beside me and I just hold the
camera down in front of her and take the pic.

When I take pictures of Theo there are always lots to choose
from. The dog looks good from all angles and rarely takes a
bad picture. The rest of us aren't so lucky.

Cooler weather means that TJ can go farther again, as long
as we take it easy on the hills.

A particularly pretty piece of goldenrod catching
the late day sun.

Most any picture of TJ shows a
very happy dog.

Maya was convinced that she saw or heard a
deer, or something, over in those trees.

It's really not any harder to walk three dogs than one, unless
they spot a deer.

These three went four miles yesterday and
Trooper was tired at the end, but he was out
front the entire route and never suggested that
we stop.

Ready to head home.  Have I mentioned lately how much
I love my new van?

Beautiful Dogs! I can't believe how good TJ looks under your care.
