Can we take a minute, folks, to catch our collective breath? September?! Really?? I don't think I'm ready. Okay, thanks.
September's picture is a cheat - I didn't take it in 2009. But these are my self-imposed rules, and we all know that self-imposed rules are made to be broken.
I took this picture in October 2007, on my first post-California-move tent camping trip. (It took over a year to get back into tent camping, but I'd already been to Yosemite not once but twice, lucky me!).
Lime Kiln State Park. Sun-dappled rocks, gorgeous yellowed leaf - the picture practically took itself.
