Not only the public were out to enjoy the view, we have a new couple out to take some wedding photos in the cold and I guessed the kids were there happiest playing with all the shedded leaves.

Eversince Instrgram started their video services, I loved to use its video feature to take a 15 seconds clip to summarize what I saw at the destination.
