if a tree falls in a forest, and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

doesn't matter.  we discovered a gorgeous park today (we were led there by a friend's recommendation after seeing her beautiful instagram pictures).  this place was magical.  paths wound through hundreds of trees, up and down steps created from tree roots and packed dirt.  the floor was thick with nothing but fallen leaves.  we heard the nearby freeway noise, but just attributed it to the hum of the forest along with the crunching underfoot.  we forgot everything as we marched our way through, harper happily taking charge as our leader.  we wandered for close to an hour, having ventured out of the house to allow a sick daddy some peaceful rest and quiet.  and we decided that next time we visit this place, we have to bring the daddy along with us.  a short video of our morning.  enjoy.

i'm back this week in catch up mode with lots of photos and stories of our happenings over the last month.  and of course, it's halloween, so a spooky post to come.
