Thankfully, we got away for that little hike last weekend that I was hoping for. Who has ever heard of perfect 80 degree weather in October, in Michigan??? We headed out for an afternoon at one of my Dad’s favorite places – the Pine river. 4 miles we hiked with our girls! They did such a great job hiking up hills, through the woods and along the river – we saw very few people out.
I think I am in love with this photo above, the golden-colored leaves and the shadows dancing about on the trunk – gorgeous! Our hike was a bit magical, I wish I was better at capturing the leaves falling, they kind of float from the trees and rest on the forest floor. I took a lot of photos but none really captured the beauty of being in nature with the people I love most.
