A Wolf Encounter ~ Part Three

A Minnesota Autumn

The Wandering Dolphin crew has been busy adjusting back to Minnesota temperatures. But we've been having fun in the process of welcoming autumn. Since the location of our motorhome was unlikely to receive trick-or-treaters, we stopped by my parents' house for an evening of Halloween fun.
