One of my favorite places on earth is a small campground about 20 minutes from my parent's house. When we were kids the family would go camping there quite often in the summer. I have such amazing memories of the place. All the time spent climbing "the big rock," the hikes to the "eye," the shows we produced at the amphitheater and walks we took on the trails that winded through the area.
I missed the beauty of fall there this year (and for about the last decade if I'm honest.) But my SIL and I drove out one afternoon anyway - and even with most of the leaves on the ground it was a beautiful place. It was fun to share a few stories of our adventures out there with her. I'm actually a bit jealous that she gets to live close enough to visit whenever she wants and I don't.
I'm pretty sure this is the last of my autumn photos - which is a good thing since there is now snow on the ground.
I'm listening to this song as I edit photos and blog - it is so beautiful I just have to share.
