♫♫ ... It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Autumn ... ♪♪♪

It's almost that time of year again. The time of year when those of us who love autumn start to get all excited about mums in their pretty fall colors, plump pumpkins, cozy sweaters, fresh-picked apples, and beautifully-colored foliage.

It's also when the consummate guide of where to find that beautiful foliage hits the newstands - Yankee Magazine!  Their Foliage Issue came out yesterday and I got my copy today and am ready to start turning pages, reading articles, and planning where to head to this year to give my Nikon a good workout!

As some of you may remember, I plotted out a trip last October using the 2010 Foliage Issue of Yankee Magazine which took myself, Jamie, and my mother to both New Hampshire and Maine to visit some of the towns that Yankee had listed as their Top 25 Foliage Towns in New England.

From Jackson, New Hampshire to Camden, Maine along with a lot of wonderful places in between, we had a fantastic trip seeing plenty of places I'd never been to.  I honestly think it was one of the nicest vacations I've had in a long time and I really enjoyed sharing our travels via blog post after we returned home. One of those blog posts garnered the following comment that tickled me to no end and still makes me smile every time I read it:
Yankee Magazine has left a new comment on your post "Venturing Out on Vacation, Part Eight: Moseying O...":

I am glad Yankee's article inspired you to take a foliage trip in New England. I really enjoyed reading about your adventures!

Unfortunately I'm not going to be able to take a multi-day foliage trip again this year like we did last year but that doesn't mean I'm not going to try to fit in some shorter jaunts on my days off.  After all, there isn't a single state in New England that's too far away for a nice day-trip and I do like to drive!  Now I just need to dive into the magazine and plot out some trips.  Anyone care to join me?


  1. It is currently 97 degrees outside so autumn isn't on my radar, but you know that as you've lived in California. Okay we just don't get much color here anyway. I'll take spring. That's my favorite season.

    Have a terrific day and enjoy planning your day trips. I'll check out your photography. :)

  2. you know in addition to the sights of autumn i also really enjoy the smells of it...

    Big hugs, honey...
