It's been mild here, too. No frosts, but plenty of sunshine. Average for month to date is 69F/44F.

Frosts are not very good for foliage colours, but consistently cool nights with sunshine are.

Gone indefinitely. It might make a fleeting appearance in early January, but no more! The Greenland High will arrive soon, or the Scandi High, to deliver stunning NW/NE winds that everyone wants (including you), since these winds are definitely more entertaining, useful and amazing, according to myself (the most entertaining, insightful and useful member on the forum).

Yes. Though in 2011 they were more in leaf than bare, and there was a snowstorm on Halloween. Neat combination. But trees full of leaves and heavy, wet snow made trees fall down more than usual, resulting in some long power outages.

And I haven't finished with the photos.

Going uphill. Out of practice, felt a weird soreness in my knew. Just before was a short stretch of 20% grade.



Yet another hillside:



The road up. I'm told GPSs sometimes send cars down this thing.



View from the top of the hill. In the distance just off the photo is a distant view of Mt. Greylock, the tallest mountain in Massachusetts at 3500 feet.







Going down with a paved road. You can see a few high rises in the distance.



Look back at that hill later on. Note the fire tower









what is this?!

Beautiful, as always. How many miles was the ride? Going by the map, quite a few. For some reason, covered bridges make me think of horror movies.

Nice, nei! If the region was flat, it could've been from here a year and a week ago. Even the barns looks spot-on!

That thing clinching onto a branch is of course an abandoned and dried out beehive.

It's certainly a beautiful part of the US. Covered bridges remind me of Sleepy Hollow!
