This weekend was so lovely- the weather, the company, the activities.. I wish every weekend could be as great. On Saturday night Matt and I drove up to visit his parents a couple of hours north into New York. They live in the perfect hiking location, let me tell you. (And of course I got to spend a day and a half with Marissa which is always so much fun.)
On Sunday morning Matt and I woke up bright and early and drove a bit further north into Massachusetts for an 11 mile hike on the South Taconic Trail. It was the longest trail we've ever done together. It started in Massachusetts and wound through Connecticut and New York as well. It had some rock scrambling, closed in forest trails, exposed ridge trails, gorgeous views, and the highlight..
we got to stand in 3 places at once! Massachusetts, Connecticut and New York.
I was pretty happy about that. I guess I didn't exactly stand in 3 places at once.. you'll see in the picture below that Matt is standing on the tristate marker, but I'm actually sitting. So I sat in 3 places at once.
Fall hiking is my favorite. The tree covered mountains and valleys look so gorgeous and the temperatures are usually more comfortable. This weekend it was 80 degrees- it was so strange to be hiking in that heat while the fall colors came to life around us. Although I guess hiking in 80 degrees should feel like no problem to me considering Marissa, Kate and I hiked in 100+ degrees in Shenandoah National Park. Still, I'd take 80 or 100 degrees over 30 any day.
I hope everyone had a fun weekend. I can't believe it's Tuesday already.. 3 day weekends always throw me off. In a perfectly fine way, of course!
