Perfect Weekend

This past weekend was absolutely gorgeous here in the Boise area. I had to get out and get some of this fresh air and, of course, photos.
Just a few miles up the road from my home is the Boise River, where I always find I can air the cobwebs of my mind and refresh my inner soul.
While walking along the path that follows the river, I found a summer swing hanging from high above the river. I wished I had been there a month or so ago, on a hot summer day when the kids were jumping from this swing into the river. It must have been great fun.The Boise River has been a great challenge for me in the fishing department. All the years I've fished this river, I have never had one catch. I think I'll stick to enjoying the beauty of the scenery and leave the fishing to Rebecca.

Don't give up! One day you'll catch a fish! Use chicken livers as bait, fishies love it. Great pictures, very beautiful up there.

There's our beautiful Boise River! You've captured it perfectly. There are great fish to be caught from that river, my best ever was a 23 inch German Brown Trout. Those monsters can be caught in the waters above BSU.
Again, thank you for showing the journal world our beautiful city and river that runs through it!

Sigh...lovely! The trees here look so sad. We had 2 solid weeks of heavy rain. The leaves never had a chance.

The beauty in these photographs is mesmerizing! It's exactly as I imagined: pristine, lovely, and picture perfect! Makes me want to just jump in there and be a part of it. What a treat for this Dallasite to see a glimpse of your seasons changing.

Beautiful photos....maybe you should try fishing again! I like to fish but no one that I am close to does it...Looks like the leaves are turning faster there.

Thanks for visiting my journal. I thought I would visit yours since you were nice enough to visit mine. :) Autumn is my favorite season. I love your photos. The 2nd one is my favorite, although they all are very good. I hope to post some Autumn photos soon of the time I spent in Colorado.

Blessings!~
