boston lot lake

There's a perfect little lake a few miles from our house. You can tromp through the woods to get there or you can drive to a parking lot and walk up a hard pack trail for about 20 minutes. Either way, you're rewarded with some breathtaking beauty at the top. 

I'm not sure what has come over me in the last little bit, but I think I had some I-need-to-get-out-of-the-house-so-let's-do-something energy left over from the summer and I organized a little mini hike up to the lake. 

We chose the parking lot/hard pack route as it had been raining a lot and the trail was sure to be muddy. It didn't disappoint. The weather was more than perfect and the colors were at their peak. Plus company in the form of two awesome girls and three darling kids made it even better. A perfect way to spend a Friday morning.

That was such a fun day! I hope we get together again soon. I LOVE your pictures from this hike! Well, except for the group shot....what's going on with my hair?? Is it up? Is it down? Mullet? Gelled on top and ratted out at the bottom? Yikes!
