NY Get-Away-Leaf Peeping in the Adirondacks

We took a short trip to visit family in Up-State New York last week. The weather and fall foliage could have not been more perfect and the photo opportunities there were sublime.

Memories of up-state New York and Vermont October 2014.

The scenery in Washington County is steeped in history and I was thoroughly enticed by the many photo opportunities the trip presented; covered bridges, rustic barns, salt box houses, old graveyards, stone fences, blue skies and outstanding rivers.

Here are a few of the scenes I was able to capture. Enjoy!

The sign says it all.

Saltbox House best USE

This lovely saltbox house caught my attention; plain and simple.

Stone walls crafted of local rocks are everywhere.

The wondrous colors of the leaves; in their vivid oranges, yellow and red were lovely. The peak period for this area generally occurs between the last week in September and until the third week of October.
