By the time I found a safe place to park the fog was already starting to lift.
I pulled over again a little bit farther up the lake, hoping to get a better shot. I got totally side-tracked when I looked over at the provincial campground and saw this amazing sight.
It was like nature was having a picnic, and every leaf in the park had been invited.
I don't think the fall colours are going to be with us for much longer. It isn't just the campground that is covered in leaves. The forest paths are so thick with leaves it makes it hard to see where the rocks and tree roots are. I've tripped more than once! I love hearing the sound the leaves make as I walk through them.
There are still a few trees that haven't quite reached their peak, like this one in our backyard. You can see the morning fog in the distance, completely hiding the mountain behind.
Tomorrow we are having guests. My brother and his wife are flying out to Spokane from Chicago, picking up my mom, then driving up here to spend a few days. Kellen, Anita, Alexandra and David will all be dropping in at various points to see their grandma and aunt and uncle. We also had guests for lunch yesterday. My knitting friend Maureen and her husband Ron were on their way back to Kamloops from Vancouver, so stopped by to see our new home. It was wonderful to see them. I must say though, all this activity is making me wonder if I shouldn't just go ahead and open up a B&B.
For those of you who are knitters, it's been so long since I had a knitting post you must be wondering if I have given up my hobby. The problem is this. I haven't had any finished projects to blog about. But I do have several UFOs (UnFinished Objects for those of you who don't speak knitterese) that I'm working on. You might detect a theme.
Next week I hope to be able to blog about a huge project that has finally been moved from UFO status to being completed. Yes, the book. It's printed, the publisher has received their shipment, and copies are on their way to me as I write this post. I think I might faint.
