Puppy time @ Vlieland Beach!

It's the time of year again: storm, high water, newborn seal puppies everywhere......


For your ease of mind, I made my pictures using a telephoto lens, I did not come (too) close to the animals

Wasatch State Park

It was a perfect day to go to the Wasatch State Park: sunshine & blue skies, lovely temperature and fantastic fall foliage! Dru, Jana & myself had tons of fun driving the buggy on the tracks in the park!



This track was really steep:
