Stop and Smell The Roses



Or, slow down and look at the colors!
And in this case, something out of my control made me slow down!


But it ended up being a blessing in disguise....


The winding road made it impossible to pass for a while, but I had my camera...


And captured the color to share with you!

  7. I am hoping to get out and away to find some colors while the sun (hopefully) shines tomorrow. The colors are mostly south of here in the higher elevations. The hills of the Finger Lakes are probably at peak right now.

    1. I wondered if the dryness would effect the season, too...or bring it on earlier, but it doesn't seem to have bothered it at all!
