We've had a busy fall, full of good things:
It started in September with the last camping trip of the season to Buckeye Lake, high in the Uinta Mountains. We knew there was a chance of rain, but we decided to chance it anyway. We had a new tent to try out!

In between rain showers I played around with the camera, we took a walk, and enjoyed experimenting with recipes for our new dutch oven. This was the summer of new camping equipment which includes 2 new cots, sleeping bags, and . . . a new (to us) truck!

A garden (for the first time in 15 years) yielded a bounty of squash, pumpkins, cucumbers, tomatoes, and peppers, as well as some herbs: basil, sage, rosemary, and thyme. I spent two weekends canning a variety of tomato sauces, including spaghetti sauce, chili sauce, green tomato relish, and salsa. I enjoyed relearning how to can, and look forward to enjoying it all winter.
