Fall Into Romance Blog Hop




 

 

 

 

One of my favorite activities in the whole world is to trail ride with my daughter. We take the dogs, all five of them, pack hot dogs and snacks and head into the Rockies with our cameras. I love to ride in the spring and summer, but fall is probably a favorite. The crisp air, the crunchy leaves. Oh, the leaves. Here are a few shots we’ve taken over the years.

It’s not quite fall in Cowboy Bred, Cowboy Born, my story in the boxed set, Cowboy Up, but it’s getting close. Alannah Murphy is a photographer for a western magazine. She’s been sent to photograph working cowboy Sterling Gentry…


 

Please leave me a comment about your favorite fall activity for a chance to win:

  1. When I lived in the north I loved riding, now it live in Fl. So when it's cooler I play tennis.

  2. Hi, D'Ann! I love the fall pictures. Handsome and I like to go on long Saturday drives to the small towns around here. Maybe we happen on a festival. Maybe we find a fun shop or diner to try. Doesn't matter.

  4. You are speaking my language about the trail riding, girl. Once the Texas summer heat breaks, I spend as much time as I can on the back of a horse until the first snow falls. I am definitely a fair weather rider...or maybe that should be a "fall" weather rider!

  8. Thank you for sharing and being part of the blog hop. I love fall, the changing colors of the leaves. I live at the foothills of the Smoky Mountains and I love driving thru the mountains and going to Cades Cove.

  13. Hi D'Ann,
    Love the photos! Fall isn't quite so dramatic in New Zealand, but the temperatures sure drop - so my favourite activity is putting my electric blanket on my bed. Snuggly. :-)
