Smash your TV and have adventure.

 Lead the way.

The weather has been gorgeous over the last couple of days, and today was no exception. We didn't have any plans, so we were just hanging around the house. As I sat and watched a football game on TV, I thought that days like this are numbered, and it would be a shame to spend it in the house. So off we went to take a hike at our favorite place, Fall Run Park.

Golden castoffs.

Of course, I took my camera along in hopes of capturing some fall foliage. I was surprised and disappointed to see that many of the trees had already shed their leaves.

Can't let go.

This one caught my eye because it looked like it was clinging for dear life.

Stream bed.

Unlike when we visited in the spring with the Girl Scouts, the creek beds were relatively dry.

Skipping stones.

But that didn't stop Lauren from skipping stones.

Season of color.

Even the weeds were taking on seasonal colors.

God is other people.

The park had recently replaced some of the benches along the trail, and it didn't take long for passersbys to christen them with graffiti. Unlike the usual initials and smutty sayings, the graffiti on the bench at the top of the waterfall actually had some style to it.

Smash your TV and have adventure.

I have to hand it to the artist responsible for this one. Not only is the art wonderful (I love owls!), but the sentiment is perfect, and coincidentally, what led us to the park in the first place. So go on - You don't have to actually smash your TV. Just pretend it's broken. And go have adventure.
