 I recently purchased a new lens, a Canon EF-S 22mm f/2.8 STM lens, which allows me to take wider shots. On Saturday I cleaned my house and tried out my new lens.

Sunrise trail

 On a Sunday afternoon, not so long ago, I borrowed a hat and Aunt Carolyn and I hiked Sunrise trail.

 One of the things I noticed about Arizona was the colors--they were so much warmer than Michigan colors. Both states feature a large quantity of brown in November, but the browns are different. Michigan brown has a gray undertone, but the Arizona brown was warm.

 I attended the CALT Conference in Tucson, Arizona last week. I was able to add a few days to my trip and spend time with Aunt Carolyn and Uncle Keith. Aunt Carolyn had scouted out the optimal photo shoot times and places and I captured a plethora of photos of cactus, mountains and dessert. This photo, looking toward Red Mountain, was taken in a grocery store parking lot just before sunset.

We had a hard frost last week so we won't have any more fresh tomatoes this year.

 It's harvest season and my farmer neighbors are working long hours to get the crops in from the fields.

 My mom and sisters hosted an apple-themed wedding shower for a friend's fiancee last weekend.

Road closed

I was quite excited to see a crew working on the road . The bridge over the country drain has been closed since July, which means I have to take a detour.

 Joel came to Michigan on business last week, and was able to spend a couple of days delivering hay, eating apple pie, and playing games. We even let him have a turn holding the baby.

Good morning

A couple of weeks ago, we had unseasonably warm weather (in the 90s) and I took my blanket and pillows outside.
