I'm not sure when it started - Tuesday? Wednesday I drove over to Waterbury via the interstate to meet my old friend Sue for lunch. The fall colors were beginning to really pop, and I thought perhaps we'd have one of the most colorful seasons in a long time. And it just kept getting better. Friday, I took a group through the town forest and up to the Grand Lookout on Millstone Hill. Everyone oohed and aahed. Saturday, I took another group, much larger this time, to the Empire Lookout. Same reaction!
This is the time of year when we don't know where to turn next - but every view is just amazing. I know it won't last but a few more days, but we are enjoying the color in the meantime. It's been near 80 every day, too, making everyone smile. This is a photo of a tree in our neighborhood. That hazy mountain in the middle is Camel's Hump, the state's most recognizable peak.
