This has been one of the best Autumns I can remember. The colors and the weather have been phenomenal. I haven't been able to ride since my heart procedure nearly three weeks ago and I just found out today that I will have to have another procedure done to alleviate an atrial flutter that has now developed. My last procedure was for atrial fibrillation. This news has come to me as a huge downer, but I know that I will bounce back from this and be stronger because of it.
In the meantime, I've been spending my time doing a lot of hiking up in Elm Creek Park Reserve, our local gem, and enjoying the Autumn splendor...

I am not a golfer and always felt that golf courses were a complete waste of real estate. However, they are great for xc skiing in the winter :) Sunday morning found me on Theo Wirth Golf Course in Minneapolis. For the past 20+ years I always felt that this would be a great spot for some early morning photos. Not being able to ride because of my recovery from a heart procedure I found myself driving to the course at sunrise on Sunday morning. I was right...It was a great place for a photo shoot whether you are a golfer or not.

Eastman Nature Center, xc ski trails, horse trails, and the list goes on. Another thing is its proximity. We live in Maple Grove and the Reserve is located on the northern boundary of the community and is only a few miles from home.
The sumac is on fire.
