That seems to make life so much nicer in the woods, ya know?
We stayed a stone's throw from the river and pond and if we were any good at fishing (or knew what we were doing), we'd have caught that huge trout that seemed to be mocking us (Scott).

I took naps and the kids did not and somehow that worked for us. We didn't get to see a lot of leaves changing - maybe next time - but we did see a tail-less rodent that was huskier than a squirrel! Initially I thought it might have been a chipmunk but I am not so sure now that I've been googling around.... any ideas? (I was not quick enough to get a capture of the furry guy.)
