|View from the "Scenic Lookout" in Minden|
|The view from the bridge: note Robinson's on the left|
|Also applies to tiny dogs, apparently|
|The view straight down|
|No lookout is complete without giant novelty binoculars|
The binoculars also lend themselves to this hilarious staged photo, so clever that we recreated it from seven years ago (note the incredible similarity between jackets because it's the same one):

It was approaching 4:30 and the traffic heading the other way seemed to be getting heavier. We reluctantly turned back and headed for home—this time using the "suggested" routes as they were faster and we didn't think we would be seeing anything more spectacular than the forests we were leaving behind. We got home right at twilight, thanked Sophia and collapsed onto the couch for the evening. The experience was worth a trip several times longer than the one we made.
I love this time of year.
