Another beautiful reminder that we are blessed to live in the best place on Earth.

Got out on the water and paddled cranberry lake with a group! Got to get off and explore some rocks, go for a chilly swim, and camp out! It was so fun to be outside and enjoy being with new friends!

The waters were a little windy, which made canoeing a little bit more difficult than originally planned. The trees surrounding the lake were just beginning to change their colors, so mainly green with a few leaves of red and orange. But the views of the mountains along the lake were absolutely stunning.

The water was roaring and so amazing. The air crisp and steam flowing from the water with the changing leaves in the distance 

Waterfall and Autumn leaves

This is a fallen tree on the Lampson Falls trial. Such a beautiful piece of nature 


Sunset Hike on Mount Arab, lots of bugs, but the view was worth it.
