Beyond the back gate

This is the view just beyond our back yard. Isn't it gorgeous!

This morning I went on a brief exploration in the opposite direction of this photo. If I am feeling adventurous tomorrow I will go explore in the other direction.
The field dips into a ravine with some well worn ATV and bike paths that snake through the grass.
Thanks to the uneven ground it was rather easy to get shots that you could not see much of the housing track that is just beyond the field.
The grass is actually rather tall, in some spots it was at least a foot high. I am rather glad I decided to wear jeans, tennis shoes and a sweatshirt instead of my usual Capri's, sandals and a sleeveless top. Not only was it a bit windy but who knows there could be poison oak or something.

Of course I didn't even think of the possibility until I saw these odd looking leaves.
But that didn't stop me, I was enjoying myself way too much.

Not sure what type of seed pod this is but I thought they looked rather neat.
So there you have it, a few sights just beyond my back gate.

Linking up with Macro Monday 2
