Many years ago I decided that the foliage change "peak" was on Halloween here. Often when that day approaches I start second-guessing and wonder if it may be coming late or that it may be a year with less impressive colors. I usually end up deciding that both those possibilities are subjective and highly dependent on where you're looking.
On a chilly and cloudy afternoon, this was the scene which most caught my attention while walking around the pond. It's typical of this time of year there.
