~Fall Backpacking Shades State Park~

Well fall is in full swing and I have to say so far so good ... We decided to load up the dog and the backpack gear and head for the woods. It was a fabulous weekend to backpack the weather was simply gorgeous. There is nothing better than sipping wine by a campfire with your two best friends! Each night we were greeted by the calls of the great horned and barred owls along with a pack of coyotes who sounded like they were right outside our tent. There is something about the fall sunlight, it is so soft and subtle, it seems to give everything a warm glow. I can't think of a better way to enjoy fall then to spend it outdoors enjoying natures ever changing pallete. So get outside and enjoy all the fall splendor and soak up the last bits of warm sunshine!
