The view from my perch on the mountain

I wonder where this road goes

Part 3 in the continuing saga of how I ended up in the dog house.

While on my “short trip to shoot a few photos” yesterday I eventually looked through the windshield, instead of the view finder, and there before me was a stretch of road that looked vaguely familiar.

There were wonderful fall colors on both sides so I continued rolling along, stopping wherever the mood grabbed me and shooting pictures of everything within camera range.

The haze had almost completely vanished by now and the deep blue sky was  breathtaking.

The high, puffy clouds provided the perfect contrast between the deep blue above and the fields below.

Rounding the next curve in the road I found this sign and knew exactly where I was. I had stumbled upon Raven Cliff on a previous exploration but had arrived here by a different route this time.

Now that I knew exactly where I was I turned my mind once again to capturing as much of the fall color as possible. This was the beginning of my problems.

Murphy’s law states that whatever can go wrong will. Today Murphy was riding in Sam’s seat.

Murphy ain’t much of a navigator. At least Sam marks trees so he won’t get lost.

What will Rocket man discover next?

Is that smoke coming out of Frankie’s ears?

Why is she holding a cast iron frying pan?
