Walking to work this morning: This time of year the sunrise is right around 9am. The days are getting shorter and everyone is expecting the first snow.

Spotted on the boot lake trails. The weather is starting to get cold (around 3 degrees these days) and so animals are busy getting ready for hibernation.

This squirrel was busy gathering and eating bits off pine trees.
