New England "Leaf Peepers" & More
Smitty and I were in much need of a week away for rest and relaxation. We spent the past week in Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and Massachusetts. This was a trip with no itinerary except to see as much beautiful fall foliage and pretty scenery as possible. We started each day with no particular activity scheduled and no end-of-day destination. This is something new for us, but it worked well on this trip. Early in the week it became evident that we were not only looking for the autumn colors and beautiful scenery, but finding as many covered bridges as possible. Smitty actually got into it more than I did because of the different engineering styles. It became somewhat of a challenge each day to "find" the bridges that were marked on the road maps. Trust me, some were easier to find than others. Church steeples became my thing. There is just something about coming into a small New England town and seeing from a distance the white steeple mixed in with the beautiful autumn colors on the hillside. Check out only a few of the 400+ pictures of bridges, steeples, and God's wonderful colors and creations in the pictures below. I will be working on my infamous vacation photo journal this week to share with family and friends.
