Autumn Awesomeness

Awww, we have officially reached Autumn!  What started as a chilly morning gave way to a warm and sunny blue sky at midday, and then faded into a cool foggy mist by late afternoon...the first day of autumn was perfectly enjoyable!  My family and I ventured up to the area just North of Asiago, where there are beautiful forests, beautiful mountains, and as it turns out, beautiful mushrooms and flowers.

It's hard to believe in just a short while the hills will be covered with snow.

I see you!

Hello, Toad!

Can you find the tiny toad?  There were hundreds of them hoping up the hill!

Mountain cows at the Malga. We brought home some of their cheese and butter...there is nothing better than mountain cow butter!
