Commenting on all three hiking posts at once, in the interest of not flooding your comments inbox:
Wonderful photos! Pleasing "people pictures", fantastic fall foliage, mirror-like lakes, wonderful waterfalls, magnificent views of all the above... excellent! I am especially fond of the second and last photos from this post - autumny and amazing!
Looks like the aspect of being with a group of good friends for the hike(s) was a strong highlight as well. :]
Nice song choices, by the way.
Thanks for doing this great post series - it made for very pleasant reading!
