Indian Lake

I don't want to let go of summer and summer must feel the same way because we're still calling 80º "cool" weather. Indian Lake was always a great place to take my cousin's dog, Roscoe, one of my favorite candy blog models. I miss the big ol' bonehead and I'm sure he misses all our walkies and Wisconsin in the fall. 

Roscoe would love to live in granny's hostas if Indian Lake was off the table



Across the street at Halfway Prairie. Bonus, this blog talks about a "haunted hill"



Some pre autumn goldish yellow



A great place for walkies year round. It helps to be hardy and/or Norwegian if hiking the winter trails



Equal time: Dex looking all Killah

    1. Have seen some browning leaves and faded flowers, Joyful. Just some dots of red yesterday when I went to Indian Lake. I do hope to capture some transition photos.

    1. That building seems to have an interesting history, Carol. I was just passing by but want to hear more about the haunting aspect given the season.

  3. Looks like a great hill for a hike!
    To get back to your comment (you couldn't have lived in L.A. unless you had a lot of Moolah) - it's surprising that after about living 2 years in the country,it's actually more expensive to live here than in the city (at least in California).
    Drive much longer to go to the stores, so more gas and more wear and tear on the car since we live on an unpaved road. Everyone here on the mountain has a gas-and septic tank. So cooking with gas is more expensive too (I tried cooking with electric, but backing desserts is the pits, so we're waiting and see if we can do it with gas:) Sorry, a long answer - i don't view it as negative though, because we wanted to get out of the city!
    "See" you in a few days at SEASONS!

    1. That's surprising to me. Makes me realize how lucky I am location wise. Unpaved roads are the pits, it's bad enough so many spots in town are always under construction. I wanted to mention and should of instead when I left a comment for you just now that I LOVE that sunset building shot. It looks like the empty building is being enveloped by some other worldly haze. (Been catching up with Dr. Who.)

  4. Aren't hardy and Norwegian synonymous? The walk looks wonderful. Now I have to go follow the link to find out what a candy blog is.

    1. I always thought so or at least the ones I've met around here. Seriously, if you want to meet someone from Norge just go out in the worst weather imaginable in the dead of winter and there they are grooming a cross country ski trail of their own volition.
      It was just a mini jaunt, but I've been on this spend less money stay closer to home take another look at what's around you kick. Ack, it's just my poor neglected blog where I post pictures of sweets that are the last thing I should be eating with "amusing" commentary. Funny though as little as I post there people still want to send me candy.

  7. He was one of my favorite hiking pals until he moved away, Kathe. I can tell you my cousin doesn't appreciate his efforts to stay cool in her plants.

  8. Hello Jeanna, hope I didn't give you the impression I lived downtown L.A. - it has always been the suburbs, but not the ritzy suburbs like Irvine, the Beach cities, or Beverly Hills:) Hope to see you at SEASONS in a day or so... have a great week!
