Well fall is upon us (despite the fact that it was 78F and humid today). Thought I would show some pics of the foliafe here in NH.

This is my front yard.

Still in my front yard - a red maple and a burning bush.

The following picks were taken on Saturday Oct 11 as we meandered up to our camp.
This is a the dam for Kilton Pond in Grafton NH. I love the color and the mist on the pond.

This last pic is from the pond at camp. You can't see color but I like the cloud pattern and the reflection on the water. And the cute lady in the canoe - my wife.

Driving through NH this past weekend, my wife and I were commenting (as we have many times before) that we're just so lucky that we get to experience such amazing natural beauty all the time.

Your pics confirm that, Phil.

Lovely photographs.

Speak for yourself, Dave. Winky I love visiting rural areas but would not choose to live in such a place. I much prefer a decent city with a pleasant vibe. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. Vive la difference. Thumbsup

Excellent! I just asked a guy in IL today of the leaves have changed, and they had not yet...great to see.
My wife and I are planning a fall trip to New England in a couple years for our anniversary.

I understand fully. I grew up in San Diego and lived in cites all my adult life. now in my 60s the change was welcomed. I visit Portland all the time. it actually makes the visits more enjoyable. although without the internet to feed my brush addiction I would be lost. I live amongst real loggers not "ax Men" portrayed on tv. also I don't hunt. odd duck here for sure. remember the hay day of the El Cortez I worked there in 1964 as a teenager

The El Cortez is now apartments. I remember going up to the restaurant for a drink once in the mid to late 1970s. The view was spectacular but, sadly, by then the El Cortez was well past its prime. I have to admit that I do love this city and am happy to call it home. I just spent two days in Los Angeles visiting my sister and brother-in-law who just moved there from New Jersey. All I can say is, while I love my sister, I could not wait to get the train back to San Diego. There are a few cities I just don't care for and Los Angeles is one of them. As I said, Vive la difference. Obviously, 8-10 million folks in the L.A. area see something to love.

The other nice thing about San Diego County is that I can drive to the mountains in an hour or less and see the Fall foliage (though not as spectacular as our friends in New England and upstate New York can) or even snow, in winter. (I don't visit in winter. 24)

Beautiful pictures Phil. We are going through that now in Northern Wisconsin.

Me and the next door neighbor rake our leaves together into one big pile and his two little kids bury themselves in the pile. Thousands of beautiful colors scattered everywhere.
