As summer temperatures dwindle and a few leaves turn into shades of red, yellow, and orange, anticipation builds for the most vibrant and glorious time of year. It is a time when attention turns from refreshing dips in the local lakes and rivers to crisp walks in the woods. The familiar sounds of splashing water turn into the crunching of leaves underfoot. Bathing suits are traded in for sweaters and flip-flops for hiking boots. Instead of sipping on lemonade, we brew some warm apple cider. It is a time of transformation indeed. This season is a time to connect with nature and revel in gratitude for the beauty that surrounds us. As the leaves start to turn, the trees become the focus, and it is time for the return of the season’s travelers, fondly known as Leaf-Peepers.
Peak season is approaching for those who want to experience the sights, sounds, sensations, and flavors of fall in the bountiful Tri-State area (Track your destination on this peak season map). It’s time to plan what will be your unforgettable 2022 autumn journey! See the beauty of the Appalachian Trail in Northwest Connecticut, the Hudson Valley, and the Berkshires of Massachusetts.
