It's Fall!

Fall, it seems, is finally upon us.  In the Runnells household, fall is an especially welcomed time of year as it means lots of time outdoors - hiking and climbing are best when the air is crisp and the sun is out. Fall also means pumpkin flavored treats (lattes and smoothies from my gym),  new and tried and true soup recipes, pumpkin farms, and trips to Devil's Lake with the gang.

Sunday, we made quite the day out of our trip to The Lake.  We started our day with a ferry ride - after all, Brian says the day doesn't count unless you take the ferry - and, after a bit of searching, found a great place to set up 'camp'.  It seemed a lot of people shared our sentiments about last weekend being a perfect one for being outside.  They definitely weren't wrong!

After climbing and basking in the sun for the better part of the day, we headed to the South Shore for a hike around the lake.  In total, we walked about seven miles and got more sunshine than I get in a typical month (thanks to a windowless classroom in a hallway without outside access).  It was a fantastic day,  one that made me hope a whole lot of fall is ahead of us still.
