I love fall, but I don’t like it. I love that fall brings beautiful colors, mild temperatures and an end to the mosquito over population. But we all know what fall brings next and that is winter – a time when leaving the house takes 30 plus minutes because of all of the layers, hats and gloves we have to put on. A time when your nose hairs freeze together upon opening the front door and a time when colds and flu viruses run rampant. So yes fall, I love you – but I don’t like you very much at all.
Last weekend my family and I took a trip into the northern part of Michigan’s lower peninsula to see the fall colors and enjoy some fun at Boyne Mountain resort. While most people might recognize this location because of it’s popular ski presence, we actually love to visit during the month of October because there aren’t large crowds and the fall colors surrounding the resort cannot be beat. Plus, the resort is great about offering free fall family activities to their guests such as hayrides and bonfires at night.
