I spent this past weekend camping in Mirror Lake State Park near Lake Delton, Wisconsin.   The leaves are changing but probably a week or two away from peak autumn color.

“To believe in luck, you must believe that the universe is a roulette wheel and that instead of paying out to us what we have earned, it pays out only what it wishes. But it is not a spinning wheel of chance, it is a work of art, complete and framed by eternity.”
