9 Oct Fall Foliage report
The Mohawk trail to Danby VT
Greetings Leaf Peepers
We started late on our Columbus Day journey but because we started at 11 AM and by virtue of not traveling up 93 like most folks we didn't see a lot of traffic. We got on route 2A then 2 and proceeded west. We stopped at one of the few rest stops on route to and this one is the John Chapman rest area. Don't tell me you don?t know who Johnny Apple seed was. There is even a small statue of him in front of the welcome center.
Once we hit Erving MA the color really started to pick up and there is also Lisa's newest favorite antique place "The Freight House Diner". We spent a bit of time in here and Lisa found a ceramic cat that she had to have.
On the road the hills that rise above route two were mostly peak but because of the mist and heavy clouds it?s hard to tell the quality of the colors. We stopped along the road a few times to take a few pictures. The final time was at the eastern summit pull out on route 2. The low lying fog merged with the clouds weaving its way through the valleys.
Once we got on route 7 the light fast departed and we passed several towns that we will wait for better weather to visit...
To Be Continued...
There are other ways to stay up on the fall foliage and activities in these parts. You can listen to 980 WCAP talk radio on Thursday mornings at 11:10AM EST on your AM dial. I'll be talking with the hosts about the upcoming fall foliage season. If you don't live in the area, you can listen on their website www.980wcap.com and catch it streaming on your computer.
Don't forget to login on the forum Jeff's contest thread is open to guesses to figure out my total mileage this season and to win either a boxed card set of my foliage series or a HD DVD fall video. (I didn't make it; I just purchased it on Amazon)
Autumn is here (Next week, anyways) and I hope to hear from you throughout the rest of the fall, if you have any questions please feel free to ask them here in the comments section or in the foliage forum or in the Yankee's Foliage Fan page on Facebook and I and the other folks will do their best to answer them. Or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
