I spent the weekend camping where, at every turn, this scene surrounded me. I spent most of the time with the camera around my neck hiking, biking, and rock climbing. No cell phones, no internet, no technology period. I keep thinking I should do a 'no tech' weekend more often. I felt so refreshed and calm. Of course, watching the leaves change colors before my eyes really helped as well.
Now I'm back home with laundry, pictures to edit, and work to do. I'm going to hang onto this feeling of freedom that autumn in the woods brings just a little bit longer.
