More Fall....

I took so many beautiful images of fall up in the Berkshires.  I just wanted to share them with you.
The tree I parked under at Melanie's. 

We went for a quick afternoon hike to see the color across the valley from Melanie's house. 
leaves on the ground
and in the air
 And the view of the valley.

Sunday we hiked to the summit of Mount Greylock. It was a gorgeous day and many many people took advantage of the beautiful weather. 
 Including us.
When we came off the mountain Melanie and Doug got into their 63°F pool! I dipped my toes in. 
And before I knew it I had to head home and leave this fall idyll.

Happy Fall

I'm in western Massachusetts visiting my friend Melanie at her beautiful home in the Berkshires. I do finally understand all of the "leaf-peeping" that happens up here. It is beautiful. This is a panorama of her back yard. Right after I finished processing this, the horses were let loose to run down there in the paddocks. There is frost on the grass and Melanie and I plan on hiking part of Mt. Greylock today. Then, sadly, it is time for me to go home. Tomorrow is a holiday. Yay! but it is already overbooked with all the things I WANT to do. Never mind what I need to do, include blog posts.

PS: Be sure to click on the image to enlarge it so you get the full effect of the color.
