Fall Foliage Tour... 2008

Ever since I was a little girl, the state of Massachusetts has called to me. I have no reason to believe that I have witches or pilgrims as ancestors nor that I may have unknown deep-rooted Democratic tendencies. I only know that I've felt that strong eastern pull. I even sent my Dental Hygiene National Board scores to Massachusetts, willing to uproot all that was familiar to me... wishing for a new life there. As it happens, real life/love/family interfered and I settled in Ohio. Thirty years later, I was finally able to visit the absolutely-freaking-gorgeous state of Massachusetts. A trip through the Berkshires and eastward following the Mohawk trail proved to be the most delightful case of sensory overload I could ever imagine. The red, orange, and yellow leaves contrasted with the deep color of the evergreens to provide the perfect autumn palette..... it was sooooo lovely. I shall return.

Beautiful photos. I actually live in the Adirondack Mountain area which is also very beautiful! I love the beauty of MA but the expense of that state is very very high. My son and DIL lived there for a very short while. It was very expensive compared to where we are.

Thank you! I actually got caught up in your nephew's Putnam County Spelling Bee blog. I was born and raised in Putnam County (Ohio) and now live in Putnam County (Indiana) This General Putnam guy must have really pulled his weight during the war....lol
