Fall in Wisconsin

Fall has always been my favorite season. I wish it were longer. I love the crisp air, digging out sweaters, hearty soups, and the changing colors. I absolutely love living in this part of Wisconsin. The fall foliage here really is breathtaking. Colors are at their peak right now.

Sunday afternoon Nick and Ellie ran errands and I took the big girls to Rib Mountain State Park to see the fall colors. The road to the park is closed so the only way up is by ski lift. We went to Granite Peak, the ski resort in town, and rode the chair lift up the hill. I've been waiting for the girls to be old enough to do this and didn't want to miss it this year.

Once we got to the top we climbed the tower. Look at our view.

Bennet and Scout loved climbing.

Ellie wasn't forgotten. She loves playing in the leaves at home.
