Anyway, on my way home from church this morning, I was struck by the colors of the trees. I realized this is one of the peak weekends and if I didn't get out today, I'd probably miss the best of the colors. So, I did a slight detour and went to one of my favorite places. Lake Hope State Park. Lake Hope is about 30 minutes from my house and is a wonderful Ohio State Park. They have cottages, camping, a beach, lots of nature trails, boating, a nature center, archery ranges, picnic areas, shelters (some of the most lovely I've ever seen) and so much more. I always make a point to go to Lake Hope in the fall, as this is when it is truly spectacular. There's also a neat little cemetery that I like to check out and that included in my photos below.
Enjoy the pictures!
