Fall is Here.

 I couldn't have ended up at a nicer place on a Friday afternoon after school.

I hit a stretch of stream that I hadn't been to for a while and I was surprised to find these magnificent stream cairns.  Thank you to who ever took the time and craftsmanship  to construct these towers.

Looking up the bluff there was an awesome cave entrance that I could picture a Native American perched back in the day.    
 Wanting to get a closer look and always up for a Danger hike I climbed  up the cliff face about 3/4s of the way before common sense took over, not my strong suit.

The climb up looked doable but the drop down to the stream was a ways down and I was flying solo, so there was no one to call the paramedics.
 So, it was back down to the stream for a little more fishing before Susie and I went downtown to meet up with some friends for the Friday night social hour.

We were up bright and early for a walk through the DBQ farmers Mkt and to retrieve the Bus from the Voices show.  Only after we grabbed a cup of joe and a breakfast sandwich.

We also spent some time talking to James Kendal who has taken over Annie's Acres and providing the Bellevua area with some great produce.

We ran down to the Warehouse to pick up the van but guess who forgot to  bring the keys.

Saturday afternoon we hit an outdoor wedding reception  to celebrate a great young couple, Brian and Rachel and their boy Rye.

 Rachel's grandma made some wonderful cakes for the party.  The banana raspberry was the best.  
 We found a sunny spot by the wood pile out of the wind to soak in all the joy of the day.

Then back up to Dubuque for round two with three sets of van keys.

Side note getting the van  out was just as sketchy as getting it in the space.
