I took the dogs out to Kennesaw Mountain yesterday and rediscovered just how beautiful that area is. Wide pathways and lots of room to breath deep and be thankful that it  is so close.

As we were leaving I noticed that someone had placed a well-worn Christmas decoration on a tree limb near the parking area. It seemed like the perfect way to say goodbye to the Christmas season.

Then as we were leaving the battlefield, I notice a small group of deer grazing near another pathway. I called out to them, and they did not react (I was trying to get them to look up for the camera). I have to remember that they are way too accustomed to being around people. So they definitely were not distracted by my shouts of “hello.”
