to combat the sinister boredom that has enveloped our weekends of late (the terrifying calm before the storm i say), we decided to get back to long lake and take a walk to enjoy the fall colors. the weather was 60+ degrees (no jackets!) and not raining (a weekend staple recently). we were basically all alone in the bright colored woods following the beautiful path riddled with moss-covered rocks and tree roots and tons of mushrooms along the way. breathing in the pine tree and wet leaves scent was intoxicating. im glad we got out.
