Autumn Hills in the Woods

This will not be a wordy post, but a picture post.  Eliza is 2 mo. old now and we are settling into our new home for the autumn.  Craig is busy taking out overgrown brush and selectively thinning the trees to make the property into what we want.  It's hard work, but I never hear him complain about using a chain saw or moving good, heavy wood.  the kids are helpful, most of the time.  The grass is long because the lawn mower isn't working, but there are plenty of places to play and plenty of other outdoor work that needs to be done.  The grass can wait.  
I love wood piles.  They are so beautiful.  

It looks pretty trashy, but the kids made this fort that they are really proud of.  

And a bridge across the gully.

Looking down from the start of the trail.

Some of the trees and branches Craig took down.

The grape vine that will have to get some attention next year.

As you turn in the driveway.

Small woodland creatures.

Craig tried his hand at splitting rails.  They look great!
