Fall in the Adirondacks
We had a spectacular weekend. It's nice to have a weekend when Cory & I can spend time together and break out of our normal routine (which consists of school, work, homework, sleep ... boring ...) This was such a weekend. We made a day trip up to the Adirondacks - a 6.1 million acre forest preserve in the upstate part of New York. It was peak season for viewing fall leaves and boy, was it pretty. The pictures pretty much speak for themselves.
We did about 10 miles of hiking and it was very pretty. We hiked a couple of "mountains" (only a few thousand feet) and around a lake. The weather was more or less cooperative, with occasional showers (though we did get to use our awesome new rain jackets - thanks Mom!) All in all, a very relaxing weekend and a chance to appreciate this beautiful state we live in.
