The entrance to the park


We took the recommended route to make sure we saw all the autumn leaves


The lake is stunning during the day, but super special at night


The lights are always classy. No flashing disco lights!


There are lots of nice little features, such as Japanese bridges and huts.


Be sure to bring a good camera for the night shots!
