The Birks at Aberfeldy and Dinner at The Croft

There is no way I can do justice to this day with a few pictures, which themselves don't do justice to our experience, but I feel like I need to commemorate our outing nonetheless. We chose to go to The Birks of Aberfeldy as an afterthought, really. We had previously explored much of the area, and we already had a dinner reservation in Aberfeldy, so we thought, "Why not?" But, Oh! what a treat awaited us! It was one of the most beautiful hikes I have ever taken, with a multitude of waterfalls, an abundance of fall color, and some amazing vistas. I'm pretty sure this is what happiness looks like!

After hiking for a couple hours in the cold, we were glad to settle in at The Croft restaurant, to warm up with a delicious meal, a fantastic wine, and several fabulous desserts. It was a truly wonderful day!

There's a fungus among us

The bark of this beech tree was absolutely stunning!

There were so many wonderful photo ops

Beautiful vista near the top of the trail

I love every part of this!

A feast for the eyes, a balm for the soul
