Opening emails from Green Valley renters can be the best part of the day when you send us pictures like this one. Thanks, Mark, for this incredible shot! Hope everyone else enjoys seeing this fellow as much as I did.
"This evening, after a day of trimming brush in our valley, I sat on Excelsior Cottage's deck for a rest.
Ten deer crossed the fording on Bear Creek and I was lucky enough to get a picture of a few of them.
The perfect reward for a hard day's work"

Today, after doing some fall cleaning in the flower gardens at Excelsior Cottage, we took a nice, long hike into the hills. The foliage is at its peak---beautiful.
The fall colors are peaking this week, which makes it a great time to work on our newest trail-Stoner Run Trail. We hope to have the sings up and trail marked and ready for hikers next week.

The colors of Fall are beginning to creep into the valley and the old meadow by Excelsior Cottage is filled with waist high Goldenrod Flowers. Bill's Trail takes you all around the old meadow and through the waving Goldenrod. I think the beautiful and bright Fall colors help ease the pain of a Summer gone by...........
