Leaf Peeping

The weekend weather offered an opportunity for wifey and me to do some driving out in the country on Saturday and up in the Mountains on Sunday to view the fall foliage, which is generally in peak season. Windy conditions gave me some time off from my weekend flight schedule, so on Saturday we ventured out to rural Washington County, over in the Hebrons/Salem area. We found the color best east of County Rt 30. The closer you got to the Vermont border, the more past the color was. We visited all our favorite haunts such as Steininger’s in Salem, and the Battenkill Creamery and Garderworks, plus a new place, an open house at the 1786 Wilson Homestead in Hebron. Because it was going to be a windy afternoon again on Sunday, we took a drive up north to Chestertown to have lunch at the Main Street Ice Cream Parlor Restaurant. Then we took our favorite fall foliage viewing drive on Route 8, up along Brant Lake and up to the overlook on the way to Hague. The overlook views west toward Crane Mountain.
