I am writing from Woodstock, where I am quite blown away by the beauty. The colours are gorgeous, the trees movingly autumn-clad. There will be few if any posts over the next few days, but my memory sticks are filling up fast.
If you still have time to get away for fall colour, and are in the Hudson Valley neck of the woods, I recommend the Woodstock Inn on the Millstream very highly. It's the kind of motel you wish for: pretty, impeccably clean, and set near a broad stream over whose low rapids yellow trees lean and leaves sail.
We have picnicked every day on apples bought at farm stalls, one apple per meal, so that we are learning exactly how they differ. Honey Crisp is leading the pack.
