A colleague of mine had told me about this wonderful spot near the town of Holte outside of Copenhagen. It was a woodland area on a tiny peninsular in a lake. I figured it was probably a nice place, but I wasn't sure it could compete with my rich local forests that I was so used to. But I was pleasantly surprised. Part of it was arriving when the golden colors of the leafs were peaking, but it truly was an unusually beautiful spot - as the pictures hopefully reveal - and I was happy that I went.
