Another beautiful Fall day (without soccer obligations) so another hike. We hiked Umstead State Park's Sal's branch trail. We chose it because it loops down to Big Lake where you can step off the trail to enjoy the lake for a bit. So here's another lake shot that includes a boat house. Today I was ready with a telephoto lens in case we saw any deer...and we did. Still had to crop this one tight, but got a photo. We'd seen three deer earlier including one buck. We wish we'd gotten an earlier start, maybe next time. The photo below was taken thru the chain link fence by the boathouse.
