Lake Metroparks: Greenway Corridor and Chair Factory Falls

Today is a beautiful autumn day. It's sunny and in the mid 50's. The trees are near peak color so of course we had to go out to find some fallen leaves. My little one and I are going to identify the leaves we found and then iron them between 2 pieces of waxed paper and pin them to the kitchen soffit. I know, it sounds slightly odd but it is something that my mother and I enjoyed doing in the fall when I was a child. Now it is my son's turn to enjoy the fall leaves with his mommy. These are the photos from our 2 hour walk/hike in the Lake Metroparks this morning. Enjoy!

Absolutely gorgeous fall foliage and your son is a cutie. Great shot of the little squirrel too.
