When my friend Jamie invited me on a hike going up Storm King Mountain, it was perfect timing. I truly love fall, but the dipping temperatures made me feel sad and bitter. It was almost as if we were going directly into winter! But life is easier when you see the positive, so I embraced the idea of fall while being one with nature and walking under a canopy of changing leaves.
I was going to be joining a group of pals: Jamie, Ed, and James. Before we even began our journey, food got involved. With the boys getting delayed in traffic, Jamie and I met up at McDonald's first. I know. It's such a travesty to eat this stuff when we live in a city with so many delicious food options. But it's my guilty pleasure, ok? "What she order, fish filet?" Indeed, I did. I also brought some for the guys.
We have arrived!
