I think everyone loves fall...

So I am back now from fall break and it is truly a sorrowful occasion. However, over fall break I was able to go and visit much of my family and see my grandpa, who is in the hospital. I also enjoy traveling to Tennesee because that means I get some good ol' cookin' and I usually make it to the mountains. This past trip my fiancee and I hiked up to Roan High Knob at 6,285ft. It was absolutley gorgeous and foggy. At the begining of the hike I had started with a t-shirt, long sleeve shirt, sweat shirt, and a jacket (always good to hike in layers). By the end of the trip I was down to my long sleeve shirt.

It was defintely a beautiful hike to the top of the moutain and we both had a great time. My fiancee, however, was not too thrilled to hike to the top of the mountain because I seemed to have forgotten to tell her that we may go hiking that day. But I can say she looked very pretty with her hair done, hiking up the mountain. When we arrived at the summit we both played around on the rocks and took a bunch of pics. It was such a fun endeavor! The photo above is of the treeline heading down from the summit. As you can tell it was very foggy, and wet, but the hills were orange, yellow, and red....oh so beautiful. Once you arrived at a lower elevation the trees turned back to green.

I can't wait for the trees to change where I live. I love the fall and everything that it brings. I think one reason I enoy the fall so much, is that my favorite color is orange and that is pretty predominent in this season. I also enjoy the smell of cinnamon and nutmeg, and turkey, and brocolli casserole, and cold brisk air, and a heater. It all just wraps up together into one big blanket of autumn goodness. Oh yeah...and my b-day in in the fall too, which makes it very exciting!
