The above quote, copied from a recent post on the blog http://www.1happyhiker.blogspot.com , is an excellent sentiment for those of us enthralled with fall.
Over the years I've traveled throughout the US and Canada with the express goal of viewing fall foliage. This past month, in my own version of George Eliot's successive autumns, I've posted photos from Colorado and West Virginia. This week I celebrate the hardwood forests of the midwest with pictures from the Upper Peninsula (UP) of Michigan.

Visiting Lake Superior always feels like coming home; her sighing waters serenade me with songs from a life I long to have known.

Lake Superior is my favorite body of water. Readers, do you have a favorite body of water? A place that speaks to you as Superior does to me?
