Last Saturday I accompanied my blog and real-life friend Linda, of Are We There Yet? and The Distracted Wanderer fame to find some fall foliage.
You'd think being in southern New England in October we'd find some.
But I did get some shadow shots! We headed to northern Connecticut, not much color. We went into Massachusetts. Still not much color to be found.
When Linda discovered it was a mere 38 more miles to Bennington, Vt., we headed there. My guess was the foliage there was about at 10 percent color.
Boo hiss. But we had fun trying and exploring...and the weather was spectacular. Sunny and actually too warm for October. Linda and I both prefer "crisp" air.
But that was OK.
And at least we found some wildlife!
We saw a beaver.
And a moose!
(taken from the passenger seat ~ we didn't feel like getting out and dealing with the crowds)
And we later spotted yet another moose on a sidewalk in Massachusetts on our way home. (Photo quality is poor because I snapped it through the windshield when we were stopped at a red light.)
And I have many more shadowy shots to share from the day in future posts. So all was not lost ~ just the hoped-for colors of autumn!
