Fall Foliage, Friends, & Family

This post will be shorter than usual because I've just returned home tonight from my trip Back East for a combination Leaf Peeping tour of New England and visits to old friends and family time in Northern Virginia.

My Colorado friend and I were fortunate to have an entire week of sunny weather and 60 degree temps for our wonderful leaf tour. We landed in Boston and set off through Portsmouth, NH, York, ME, Portland, ME, then into New Hampshire and Vermond (weaving back and forth on scenic roads, then down into the Berkshires in Massachusetts and returned to the New England Seacoast and Portsmouth, NH, and Newburyport before heading back to Boston Logan airport and out of town.

My friend stayed with family in Boston suburbs while I flew to Washington Dulles and Friday Night Lights Football with family! Then I spent the weekend with old friends I grew up with in Arlington, VA, who now live in woodsy Vienna, VA. If it weren't late and I wasn't so sleepy, I'd give more details. But. . .I did post daily accounts of the New England leaf tour on Facebook. So, you can check it out for more details.

Meanwhile, I'm back in Colorado, and even in the pitch black dark of night, I can tell our leaves have turned while I was gone. I can't wait to see how pretty they are. . .when I wake up. Right now, I'm heading to bed. Take care, everyone. I hope your Fall Foliage is equally pretty.
