Get Ready For Fall Foliage Touring!

Wow, it’s going to be a great year for leaf peeping, I can feel it in my bones. The weather has been very warm lately, but I expect a cold snap to strike, and when it does, the colors of our trees in New York will look SPECTACULAR. Do you know that people come from all over the world to see the fall foliage in New York and New England? You wouldn’t want to miss out, would you??

    First time visitor. Really enjoy reading your posts.

    I visited the Smoky Mountains last fall. It was beautiful, but having lived in New England, I am always comparing. I will have to edit that video and post it to my blog. But I do believe the color will be spectacular this year, having gotten lots of rain this year.

    By the way, how is vistaprint compared to 123print for business cards?
