Without question we had several consecutive nights featuring heavy frost recently. Now many of the trees display color that draws visitors from distant states. We spent more than one hour just driving around while taking in the sights. Driving while looking at the trees is risky behavior but people driving on country roads around here go slow or are stopped. A couple out enjoying the leaves from their recumbent tricycles pulled over so we could pass. Not far up the road we waved as they passed us. We were stopped to take another picture.
All of these pictures showcase trees that grow on our property. The lone Red Maple surrounded by Norway Spruce are ours while the lawn belongs to our neighbor.
Only the foreground trees and pasture belong to us. The distant ridge is not ours but the view is free.
This is the view looking down from kame terrace. The bedrock ridge is nearly gone here but seeping water and uneven ground prevent us from mowing to the tree line. Our many years here have been amazing and we cannot imagine living anywhere else.
