|Self esteem challenge--Put my picture 1st. Done :)|
Hello and welcome to another edition of All Things Bright and Lovely. Today, for my 100th post, I celebrate my favorite time of year: Fall!
My ladyfriend and I took a trip this morning to a beautiful state park for a bit of hiking and nature enjoyment. As you can see, the trees are at the in-between stage of green and multi-colored. But boy are those colors vivid.
|Ooh, I should have put this picture first. No, no...must stick to self-esteem challenge.|
The park is very large and filled with rolling hills, lakes and thousands of trees.
The lake we hiked around was called Lake Ogle which I thought was particularly funny. Nothing funny about those spectacular hues, however.
I have no clue what the above actually is, but it was such a pretty green and looked like shag carpeting I had to take a picture.
|1st pic I did not think would look better than me as 1st picture. Sigh!|
A reminder to make sure your roots are planted deep or you might fall.
There was quite a bit of stair climbing along the trail as the terrain is wonderfully uneven.
A couple of closer shots of the lovely leaves.
|Stupid self-esteem challenge! Oh well.|
And a couple more from far away.
And this is the way in and out of the park, a very ancient covered bridge.
After the park we then went to the little town near the park full of artisans, craft shops, unique jewelry and clothing etc. Many shots of that as well but for another time as this is purely a celebration of the beauty of Autumn.
I really appreciate you stopping by and special thanks to all who left such nice words on my poem from the last post.
For all of you, readers, commenters, friends, artists, poets, geniuses...for all those who have made these first 100 posts so wonderful for me, this is for you :)
