I agree that they look very similar. Once you get south of I-90, there are plenty of hills/mountains and valleys up here.

Here's another county park that is in that area: Highland Forest Onondaga County Parks

I disagree. I think fall colors look horrible. Things look like they're dying and it's quite depressing.

You're definitely in the minority.

That's irrelevant. I decide what I like. Other people decide what they like.

That's fine, but it is true that fall foliage is a big tourist for the Northeast, and the big hills/mountains with colored leaves something the region is known for and more unique than just greenery.

Yes. I know. I think it's silly though.

Dying/decaying leaves and colored leaves are actually two different things. At peak color the leaves are perfectly healthy and maintain their shape.. They are just colorful. That is why 98% of humans like fall colors. Do the trees in Connecticut literally die and turn brown every fall? If so, it probably deserves a scientific study.

I've taken nep to mean that fall colors are depressing because it means the leaves are about to die, then everything is brown for months (and white when it snows). I disagree, I love fall colors, but at the same time I can see that point. It is bittersweet to see such beautiful colors knowing what's to come is bare trees and a dead look for 4+ months.

I don't really mind the bare winter look, though. I genuinely love having 4 real, changing, different seasons. You always look forward to your favorite and can enjoy the change.

You are the only person in the entire world who thinks that.
