Quonoa with broccoli

Today is October 17, Monday. weather is very cloudy and leaves are falling outside. its fall season with the vibrant color of leaves. we went for hiking in the park yesterday. tiring but good. walking on the trail following the signs on the trees was fun at the end of the trail reaching near the waterfall was great., then walking back was good. it takes almost 3 hours to walk the trail from the beginning to the end. The trail was full of vibrant colors of leaves that fall on the way and looks awesome. some people crossed by saying hello were walking their dogs, an overall good workout, and walking in nature. coming back on the way home and watching beautiful fall colors was incredible. watching farmhouses with pumpkins of vibrant shapes and colors was good on the way back home.
