Sometimes there's beauty in our own backyards. Or at least right down the street. Our mailbox is located 0.7 miles from our house. There's more than a 200 foot elevation gain in that distance (Actually, most of it is in the first five minutes, but it's downhill that way. The killer is that last five minutes going back UP the hill.) At any rate, we gave it a test the other day, and took a few pictures. A collaborative effort: I composed them and the hubster used his camera to shoot what I told him to, more or less. I did a little cropping when he finished. Hope this shows why we're enjoying our new environs.
