A Visit Back Home, Fall Pictures

#1

Post by dionysius » Fri Oct 31, 2008 3:43 pm

I went back to visit my parents and siblings in Connecticut. The fall colors were spectacular. We here in SoCal have our own type of fall colors but nothing beats the colors of New England when it comes to the Fall. Here are some pictures, hope they bring back some memories of colorful days.

This is where I was for the BorregoFest, sorry I missed that, I really wanted to go.

Cool pictures, thanks for sharing! I have never been to to that part of the country besides a short visit to New Jersey, if that counts, but it's something I want to do.

Of course New Jersey counts! They don't call it the Garden State for nothing.

I've lived in CA for 31 years now, and still miss living somewhere with 4 distinct seasons. Fall was always my favorite.

Beautiful pictures! I agree nothing beats the northeast for fall colors. I was on Long Island for a month during October last year.

I don't know how that region works, I know even though Florida and Texas are more South than the South they aren't part of it and any Texan will agree while Florida is still in denial. Maybe those Yanks have the same issues. :twisted:

So, strictly speaking, New England is Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Massachusetts. But any of those photos could easily have been taken in NJ (or PA or NY for that matter). You can find similar terrain, flora, fauna, and architecture in all those states.

Wow, just spectacular. I grew up in New York, and the only time I miss being back there is when I see pics like yours... :)

And while BorregoFest was fantastic, I wouldn't feel so bad about missing it considering the views you had available... :D

I have relatives out on Long Island (Plainview), but I grew up in NYC...

I think anywhere there is a lot of vegetation you'll get nice Fall colors. New York, New Jersey see the same in the Fall. It snowed on the way back from Mass. Tuesday night. I got a little of everything while I was there.

Here are some more pictures:
