Yearly Drug Fix

Autumn is my favorite time of year, but it seems to be the shortest of all the seasons, at least here in central Minnesota, so I have to take in as much as I can while the leaves are around. Last Saturday was a beautiful sunny day that turned surprisingly warm. The outlook for the upcoming week looked rainy, so I took most of the day to go hiking with Morgan in the woods. On a whim, I drove over an hour north just to go walking for three hours. I don't drive much during the week, so I figured I could splurge on the gas. We went to Banning State Park and had a great time. Well, I did. I am sure Morgan would have preferred to be off-leash, but this was a State Park, not a National Forest! As you can see, I compromise with a thirty foot line (not kidding!).

Enjoy the walk through the park!

I grew up in a place that didn't have any real seasons (Florida), so I know what it is like. I just love witnessing the turning of the year and marking how years differ from each other.

Your leaves are a bit further along than ours here in Chicago. Gorgeous! I love walking in the woods this time of year...hence my shop name. ;)

I lived in Florida for a few years...Kissimee. I have family in Apopka. I remember what it was like celebrating Christmas on the beach. I prefer this way better.
