Had a rather nice time yesterday afternoon, hanging out in various neighbors' yards. The weather was beautiful, and one of the things I really like about ranch life is the existence of a lower-commitment form of socializing, happening outdoors, that doesn't imply invitation inside someone's home. It can be lots of fun, with kids, campfires, dogs, wildlife, beer... basically all the things you aren't allowed to do in cities.

The forest is extraordinarily beautiful this time of year, with a mix of dark green firs, glossy madrones, and decidious oaks cloaked in great, shaggy mounds of white lichens and mistletoe. The view up the hill looks as delicate and precious as any Japanese garden, but for some reason I am unable to capture its misty enchantment with a camera.

However, I did snap a nice picture of Grizzly and Bill that seemed shareworthy. She's so affectionate that "down, girl" has yielded to "you two go get a room!" It's not just me, though, she's that way with everyone. ;-)
