A morning autumn walk

Ethan and I decided to go for a morning walk today and take pictures of all of the fall beauty around our city. It was a crisp yet beautiful morning and the sun was shining brightly. We grabbed our coats and I grabbed the camera and we took off. First stop: Starbucks! We got some yummy hot chocolate and then headed out. Second stop: a parking lot over by the Twin Lakes post office. I had spied some beautiful trees there the day before and had made a mental note to go back.

Next stop: the West Hylebos Wetlands Park. We got quite a few lovely pictures there. We hiked a very short ways down the trail and then returned to the car. It was so fun. Ethan's toy puppy dog, Taco Tiny Harris came with us, as evidenced in the pictures.

Final stop: 9th avenue. I knew there was a plethora of gorgeous trees there because I pass them each time I go to work. So we were sure to capture those! These yellow trees are just so pretty:

And these were cool shots too. The first one is my computer wall paper now and it looks really good on my huge iMac screen!

It was a wonderful morning and I'm soooo happy that Ethan and I got to spend the morning together!
