These past few days have proven to be one of the most beautiful fall seasons that I can remember. The leaves are especially vibrant, and this weekend we have enjoyed temperatures in the mid-60’s. We had our share or cloudy and rainy days, but the trees are in all their glory and beauty.
Nothing says fall like a long bike ride, which I enjoyed yesterday. I biked to Bolckow, a town about 15 miles from the Abbey. The two trees in their park were among the most beautiful ones I have seen and bright orange leaves were scattered all over the ground.
