Early Fall Walk


How beautifully leaves grow old.  
How full of light and color are their last days. 
 ~John Burroughs
A perfect day to enjoy the emerging hues of golds, yellows and reds of the north woods.















I spent so much time outdoors it was lucky the dinner was an easy one to put together. I recreated a salad I saw in a food magazine. An extra  bonus...its a healthy meal.
