Right after the end of my husband's (sales!) quarter , and the completion of my 50 songs in 90 days, as well as sending off my upcoming CD to be mastered (yahooooo!)- we got the heck out of Dodge (a.k.a. Dallas) and went to the New England area to check out the fall foliage.
It was our first time to go there, aside from a one day stop in Boston one summer. For years I've wanted to take a fall trip to the northeast, but I've only thought about planning it once it's already autumn way down here in Dallas, and by then, it's obviously too late! Somehow, this year, I was a little more on the ball and we planned it far enough in advance to go. Yay! :)
Fall is my favorite time of the year. And although it doesn't feel like fall yet in Dallas, I definitely got a good fix of it up in the northeast. It was gorgeous.
We flew into Boston, and then immediately drove up to Vermont and spent a few days there. Then we went over to New Hampshire for a few days. Then up to Maine. And then drove back down to Boston and flew back home.
Vermont (especially), New Hampshire, and Maine were all breathtakingly beautiful. Every drive we took pretty much looked like this. Actually, in real life, it was more stunning-- my pictures don't do it justice. At all.
We saw lots of covered bridges, which I just adore.
There were lots of churches and cemetaries that have such a
majestic quality against such a beautiful backdrop.
Although I know I couldn't endure the very long winters in that area, I would LOVE to live there in the fall!!! I am so glad I got to go this year.
