I’m enjoying a bit of a stay-cation this week. I typically try to take some time off in October so I can enjoy this favorite season of mine and this year I think I pegged it. Normally, peak color would have been last weekend, but with warmer, drier weather, fall seems to have been delayed a bit.

On Saturday, we took advantage of time off and gorgeous weather to go on a hike complete with picnic lunch–one of my favorite things to do. Here are a few shots of the spectacular scenery we enjoyed. That would be my husband carrying the picnic–he’s the best!

How about you–how’s autumn coming along in your neck of the woods?
