Does it get any better than this?

Chilson, NY, United States
20 Kudos
The air was clean and crisp. Very low humidity meant that the mountains in the distance weren't marred by haze. The lack of a breeze meant those same mountains were reflected on the water, that I was quietly paddling through that morning. The vibrant reds, greens, and yellows of the fall foliage seemed brighter and more alive just after sunrise than they do at a later part of the day. The call of a loon that pierced the silence of the scene completed the perfection that was the kayak trip I was on this particular morning. It was a perfect morning.
