Yesterday I spent the day in Lake City and Frontenac State Park with my dear friend Pam. As always, we had a wonderful time—and an equally wonderful long walk in the woods. Here are some of the highlights from our day.
We had a laugh over this not-very-helpful sign from the DNR:
Then, we marveled at the beautiful sumac-covered hillsides:
We stopped at every overlook we encountered:
Saw several trees that had been blasted by lightning:
… and stopped to watch a pair of deer walk right past the car:
As it turns out, our fall foray was blessed with unintentional foresight.
This morning, we had our first serious snowfall. Just like that, the reds and rust browns had been replaced by slates and grays.
What a difference a day makes.
And what a difference a good friend makes. Thank you, Pam!
