Fall in Minnesota

I don't know if it's like this every year, but the last couple of weeks have been beautiful in Minnesota. The weather has been favorable, and the colors on the trees are very pretty. Mom has taken me out for a few walks to enjoy the last days of being able to get outside before the cold weather comes.

We walked around Lake Camelot on Monday looking for birds. We mostly saw ducks and geese, but did catch a glimpse of an egret.

There were some flowers still hanging around despite the changing seasons.

The weather was so warm, warm enough for shorts and short sleeves. No brisk air fall walks for us, not yet at least.

The maples have been especially vibrant this year.

On Tuesday, Mom took me to Elm Creek. We looked for turtles and snakes. We found a baby snake. It was so small, Mom thought it was a worm at first.

We walked a new path through the woods. It was so pretty.

On the way back to the car, I put together a collection of sticks from our walk. It's becoming a tradition on our nature walks.
