Fall Colors

October 16. We went for a drive to see the fall colors. This is my favorite time of the year. I just love to see the leaves turn yellow, orange and especially red.

We drove 2.5 hours to Lions lookout in Huntsville...

and another hour from Huntsville to the Fire Tower in Dorset...

It was hard climbing up... but it was much harder going down the Fire Tower. I can ride any type of roller coaster, but I can feel my knees shaking on this one. I was actually scared going down, so I was able to take a picture of my family from the top.

Both towns are located in Muskoka, Ontario.


My favorite fall color is red! It was hard to find a nice red tree, most of them are along the highways... I got lucky on this one as we stop for dinner at McDonalds.

talagang baligtad tayo ng panahon. habang diyan ay nanlalag ang mga dahon dito naman tumutubo at namulaklak ang mga halaman. Pasko magbarbeque kami sa labas at nakashort samantalang sa inyo chestnut roasting on open fire at kayo ay nakapangginaw.

Hi Atoy, kakainggit naman kayo diyan. BBQ sa pasko, sarap yan!

Thanks Analyse, Darlene and Denny!

Hi Dops, I love autumn, but not the winter months. Kaka-depress ang shorter days and longer nights, sobra pang lamig. Buti na lang my family is here. Just keep yourself surrounded with friends, keep blogging and you won't get lonely! cheers!
