This past weekend, Chuck and I trekked out to Akron Falls for a weekend hike. Neither of us had been in years and I forgot how beautiful it was, especially wrapped in fall hues. Many of the trees had already shed their leaves, which left the trails smothered in them. Some parts we passed through felt like a scene out of a disney movie. I have been very inspired lately by photos from some of my favorite photographers of Icelandic and Pacific Northwest landscapes. Although finding and recreating those landscapes around Buffalo is impossible, I am doing my best to get in touch with my ‘outdoorsy’ side. I think I am catching on.
