Peak Leaf Season!

We had a delightful road trip to Connecticut during what the weather man told us would be the peak leaf peeping weekend. What artist could improve on or add to the colors God painted in the leaves of maple, oak, birch, beech, black cherry, walnut, ash, even aspen trees? Magnificent shades of orange, red, gold, brown and green dotted hillsides all along the way. And the reward once we arrived at the lakehouse? ...reflections in the water of all those colorful trees by day and moonlight shimmering on the lake by night. Yes indeed, it was too beautiful for words. So perhaps I should stop trying to capture it in writing and download a picture or two (of the hundreds we snapped).

On the way.

The house.
The dock.

The view from the dock.

And some of the key players.

Good times. Good company. Nice lakeside cottage. Phenomenal scenery.
