Yesterday I spent hiking two trails in NW CT to get in shape for my VT hiking and we saw a lot more dulling of the trees and tips of random treetops turning bright red and orange. Sensitive fern cover turned brown, indicated that temperatures had dipped into the 40's recently in the higher elevations where we hiked. Deep in the cool forest, you can actually "smell" the change....
The emerging flowers peaking out from the budding pumpkins that were recently planted in the fields were quite a sight to see! Also, a few signs along the back roads broadcasting fall festivals in Sept and Oct added to my anticipation of things to come.
I have my Delorme, Jimapco and Cartographic maps out and will begin to seek out new routes in the three places I have booked my inns at.
And lastly, I heard from Phil again and he is going to join the gang for our meetup either Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday of the first week in October.
And time marches on.....................
