On the way up, I took some pictures of the scenery. I just wanted to show everyone how beautiful it is there. Burnt Mountain was the name of the mountain we were on.

We arrived to Burt's Pumpkin Farm, and it was extremely crowded. I expected as much since it is close to Halloween. There were many cute children dressed up in spooky finery like little petticoats, striped leggings, witch hats, etc.

|Yes, the pumpkins really are this enormous.|
I definitely had my fair share of exercise today with hauling around pumpkins and pushing the wheelbarrow up steep hills. I'd do it any day, because this place is great!
On the way back, we stopped at a tractor supply company to look at some cowboy boots. I'll tell you, they had some pretty bad ass cowboy boots. Some of you might be rolling your eyes...but leather? Pointy toes? Rugged look? What's not to love! Maybe it's just the southern in me. There was pair with lace on it with a leather overlay. I tried it on, but my foot was stuck when I tried to yank off the boot. It turns out, I needed a boot jack to get it off. This was the first time I tried on cowboy boots, so I had no idea about boot jacks.
|This, my friends, is a boot jack. Yes, they are necessary.|
|Aw yeah. This hat's the shit if I say so myself.|
Good evening, everyone. May your holiday be sufficiently creepy.
