Normally when we go to the North Country in early October we miss peak leaf-peeping season but this year we timed it just right. The colors were amazing! Come along with me and enjoy the spectacular views.

From our cabin an early morning sunrise. A mass of red as far as the eye can see.

Outside our front door.  

Along the driveway. 

Only minutes away . . .

. . . gorgeous!

At the crossroads in Wilmington. . .  

. . . where we stopped to see the recently installed sculptures honoring fly fishing legend, Fran Betters. Three of his most famous flies: Haystack, Ausable Bomber and the Ausable Wulff. If you care to know :)

On the way to Lake Placid. . .

. . . where flowers were still blooming in town.

Saying goodbye to a perfect leaf-peeping weekend. 

Heading out to the Adirondack Northway . . . 

. . . and snapping pics from the car. 

Absolutely breathtaking!

Have a great week!
