On Monday, Claudia wrote about leaf peeping. It’s a big deal here in New England. I can honestly say I never “got it” until one year when I happened to be in North Conway during the peak of the season. I was there for a weekend at a friend-of-a-friend’s condo that was literally in the middle of a small group of mountains. I never saw such a riot of red, orange and yellow on the trees and it was everywhere I looked. “Ahhh,” I thought, as I looked around. “This is what the fuss is all about.”
I haven’t had the chance to do much leaf peeping this year except for right around my own neighborhood. It’s very pretty, though, so on Monday afternoon I took a walk to the Town Common and I snapped these photos for you.
Very classic New England, yes? Makes we want to drink hot cider and read Yankee magazine.
