Door County Fall Weekend

We spent the past weekend in Door County enjoying the beautiful fall colors and unseasonably warm temperatures. Door County holds a special place in my heart. I have so many wonderful memories of growing up camping at Peninsula State Park with my family, spending the weekend with friends for the Door County triathlon—and it’s also the place Larry asked me to marry him precisely three years ago. I especially love being there in the fall when the colors start to turn, the air feels crisp, it’s a little less crowded, and countless apple orchards overflow with freshly picked apples, cider, pie, donuts and pumpkins. We headed up after work on Friday and tried to fit in as much as we possibly could into our short visit. We camped at Peninsula State Park, took a ferry to Washington Island, swam in Lake Michigan, biked, ate plenty of apple cider donuts, star gazed from Eagle Tower, and revisited the very spot where we got engaged three years ago. It was a wonderful weekend—always the one I look forward to most.
