October is fast becoming one of my favorite months. The colors are fabulous, and when the chilly mornings give way to sunny, warm afternoons, I melt!
I had the great opportunity to spend some time out at Loud Thunder Forest Preserve with friends this month and fell in love with the scenery. Views of the Mississippi River on the drive coupled with Lake George and the gorgeous fall foliage really makes my half hour drive worth every moment.
My friend Lindsey and I were fortunate enough to catch the spectacular reds, oranges, and yellows of these trees over Lake George just a week or two before the wind blew most of the leaves away.
A hike just before sunset may be my new favorite thing.
