There’s no doubt that fall is upon us here in Maine. Everyday I find the trees and shrubs are a little more vividly colored, yet a little less leaved but always a little more beautiful than the day before. We’ve officially become what New Englander’s like to call “Leaf Peepers“–yeah funny, right? There’s even a “Dos and Don’t etiquette guide for peeping on the leaves and an entire website dedicated to the act! It’s even listed in the dictionary!! Look it up..”leaf peeper” Twilight Zone??? I think so! We’ve never experienced a true season change such as this–nope, never. Yeah, we’re Texans–so leaf peepers we’ve become. So when one sees a tree a blaze of orange and yellow or red, it’s like we’ve spotted sasquatch–which if you think about it, could happen too. 😉
Gone are the days of shorts and sandals, but that’s just fine. Fall days in Maine can be just as fun as those of summer. We’ve got so many adventures ahead– apple picking at Hope Orchards, maybe a hike up to Shawnee Peak with an overnight in a Yurt or possibly a day of chasing Maine’s covered bridges. Whatever we decide it’s gonna be gorgeous!
What’s your favorite fall activity? Pumpkin pickin? Cornfield Maze?
