In Search of Autumn – Cedars of Lebanon State Park

Wednesday, October 19, 2017 – Friday, October 21, 2017 Our search for the best fall foliage continues. Until now we have not been very lucky with it near Solo’s farm.

At the same time, it feels like months ago since I first picked Solo up at the airport. However, we still have some time left to enjoy ourselves, the time to say our goodbyes has not yet come.
