Yesterday I was gluttonous at lunch.

It was the best meal I'd had for months!  

I didn't devour a lick of food --- only the forest and the wonderful colors therein.  

We are now at the height of the fall spectacular --- gold, more gold than gold, deep tangerines, peaches, oranges.

I found myself in the midst of a heavenly vision more beautiful than beauty itself.

As I watched TV at home and went outside to hang out the laundry, I gazed up at Bays Mountain, and noticed little patches of gold, orange and red among the mostly green carpet of trees.

At that time is when I decided that I had to take advantage of this once a year event.  I had to go mingle and smell, walk on hallowed ground among Earth's masterpieces.

Yesterday was a day to remember forever.  Even getting lost in the woods, getting cut by thorns, the sore muscles and sheer exhaustion were worth the wonderful once in a lifetime experience of being amidst the Lord's masterpiece one fall day.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
