    As it should be peak or near peak color in much of the United States or really Northern Hemisphere for that matter. So get out with friends or loved ones for a while today.

    I think we'll head out again today cameras in hands.

    Lovely pics, thanks.

    I spent my youth in New England, having a family vacation home in Vermont and living in Northern New Jersey. And my husband & I spent a recent Fall in New Hampshire & Massachusetts, with a short side trip into Vermont.

    In the Fall I would take motorcycles rides through New England to see all this. Taking back country roads covered with fallen leaves (a bit risky regarding tire traction). And take my feet off the footpegs to let them skim along the road, plowing through the layers of leaves to send them flying behind me.

    Good memories of the late 1960s. But then I'd have to return to my parents' home and rake all those damn colorful leaves. The good part was making a huge bonfire of tree leaves with our neighbors in a nearby woods, in the days before open fires were a pollution violation.

    Every night for a month you'd smell burning leaves in the air. And I'd return home with my clothes and skin reeking of it, and have to immediately strip and shower. Good memories of New England Fall.

    This morning I hiked to the summit of Skinner Mountain. We looked out over the Pioneer Valley and the Connecticut River. The foliage was absolutely beautiful, with various shades of red, orange, yellow, and green. It makes one appreciate nature.

    Hey, REALLY nice pix! Looks a lot like the limestone formations of central and southern IN, though they stretch all over the East and Midwest. My IN, KY, WV, VA, Carolinas, TN, and GA trip is coming up and I hope to catch the tail end of the foliage. Thanks for posting these!

    Thanks to both you and Bob. Yeah, it's a little difficult to find anything to take pics of in the Midwest, but I have to keep in practice for the coming day when my memory is too shot to do commercial real estate.

    I think the 40 or so cross country trips by car have spoiled me. Nothing much here so this is the best I could do.

    Thanks^^^^^^. Great pics. For anywhere along the 40th parallel north, I think think our time has passed for this year.
