Here's the lake in my hometown, isn't this just gorgeous? I was so fortunate to plan my visit for this week when the skies were clear and the leaves so vibrant! By the end of the first week here the skies have darkened and the air is really beginning to get that fall bite to it. The leaves have fallen so much since I took the first pictures but each day reveals a new beauty. I'm so happy to see all the work the Parks department has done, installing new pathways and iron railings. Everything just looks so beautiful. Of course now I see it with eyes that have been away instead of ones who took it for granted.
