It's been a couple years since our last sojourn on the family "five forties" timberland. We're approaching time for another selective cut and thought we should take a look and do a little exploring. It's also grouse season, so - an opportunity to kill two birds with one stone - so to speak. Of course, based on our past hunting experience, we are speaking figuratively, not literally.
Beautiful day, fall color is peaking, and the dog could not be more excited.
Lets call it a 5 mile hike to photo document the land. Trying to capture the majesty of a forest in a photograph is always a challenge. Panoramas are probably the closest we can get. Some pics from the day:

Actual conversation on the hike:
"Did you hear that? That was a grouse."
"No. That was me farting."
As per usual, no grouse were harmed in the production of this photo shoot.
