    Lots of folks visit Connecticut during the fall because we usually have some pretty spectacular foliage. I've lived in CT for pretty much my entire life so I'm used to them, but this year's foliage is the most beautiful I think I've ever seen. It may be due to all the rain we had this year (27 days of rain in June or something like that), but for whatever reason, the sheer variety of colors and gradations between them this year is astounding. It's like someone poured a bowl of Fruity Pebbles onto Spring. Here's a few pics of just my backyard/woods and a couple down the street from me. Believe it or not, a lot of the places around here are way prettier right now than what's in my yard.

    Some pics:

    Very nice. I'd grab my camera and shoot some of the foliage around here if it weren't pouring.
     
  3. Beautiful place Bryan! October colors are beautiful in the northern states - same here in WA.

  5. Wow! Just makes me want to move more and more. I live in Vegas, all we see is dirt. :/ Its either hot or cold (remember our cold is different to your cold. We are not use to snow, we are use to 100+ degree weather. So when it gets below 65 we break out the jackets) and about 4 weeks total of nice weather. :( I still don't know why i choose to do football in that weather.

    I'm envious. I seriously prefer cooler climates, and it's getting worse every year. I barely made it through summer without going crazy.

    I live in CT too, but I don't think we've had very nice autumn colors here. Everything's just going from green to yellow to brown. Not very many reds or oranges like usual. Usually when we're driving west on Rt. 84 towards Hartford, there'd be some really nice autumn foliage on the hills. This year I just haven't seen anything that special though.

    Well, southeast CT is rockin' it :D I've never seen so many pink leaves.
     
  9. Here in Central Massachusetts the colors are more vivid and beautiful than I can recall. I've seen more reds around than at any time I can remember. It's gotta be the rainy summer, and that hot spell we had towards the end of August. It's a great time to be living in New England - DD has the pumpkin coffee and donuts, the colors are gorgeous, the Pats are winning, a great time to be here!:D
     
  10. I agree, this year was great. I usually don't pay too much attention to the leaves, but this year was spectacular.

    It's kinda sad that I didn't took any pictures but it was beautiful over here before the snow, a lot of yellow, red and orange, but we get that every year it's not really un-usual over here at least.

    oh and: fall_foliage.

    Noce images, Bryan. I was just in Connecticut for a week and shot a bunch of pics of the scenery and foliage. Once I get them sorted, I'll post some.

    Wow, those are pretty. I was so wrapped up in school that I never got to go see the aspens turn this year. :(
