Back when I was a little girl, it was a family tradition to drive all the way out to Sinnissippi Forest to cut down a Christmas tree for our home. And we did more than just cut down the tree–we’d sip cider and eat donuts in the barn nearby, and when lunchtime came, we’d always go out to a little cabin restaurant tucked in the White Pines State Park.
Several years ago, the tree farm closed, and it was a deep loss for us.* However, we’re keeping the tradition of visiting that cozy restaurant in the woods, and this year, I brought my parents there for their 30th anniversary. Since the weather was so beautiful and the foliage in such high color, I just had to take a few pictures while we were out there.
Being out on this gorgeous land is really making me want to take a few days off and spend them in a cabin with a stack of books and my camera. My phone doesn’t even work out there, so I could, theoretically, settle my mind for a little while. The only downside is I couldn’t bring Mox!

*In doing my research for this post, I found out the farm has reopened! Seems like it’s got new owners. Stay tuned for more details.
