Foliage is the new sunset

So last Sunday Courtnie had a great idea to head north about an hour to go apple picking at check out the foliage.  It's always nice to get out of the city every once in a while.  So after Sacrament Meeting Court, Britt, Maria, and I hopped in a Zipcar and headed out.
I honestly died over the trees.  I think I took like 160 pictures.  We were like ridiculous tourists, snapping our cameras every five seconds.  These pictures don't even come close to doing justice.







Remember this post? So this picture below is exactly what my view looked like on the plane, for miles.  Just packs and packs of trees in every colors.

This little town Sugar Loaf was so darling.

Loved this house.


I loved this picture because of the contrast of the yellow tree's branches pointing up next to the pine tree's pointing down.



We were so excited.

I almost fell over trying to get my head down so low.


Someone's backyard.  Amazing.

Britt and Court.


Loved this little place on the side of the road.

Picking out my pumpkin.



Court, Britt, me, and Maria.

Court and Britt.



I loved the woodsy background on the right.

We loved all the houses.  No cookie-cutter here.  Everything looked different.



Found mine.


Obviously I died over this one with the purple doors.



Can you believe this is just an hour outside the concrete jungle?

Three little piggies at the apple farm.





Right before we were ransacked by a million little kids wanting their picture taken.

So we didn't actually make it to the apple orchards in time to pick apples, lame, I know.  We still got a lot of great photos and Britt and I had some amazing apple pie.

So you can't really even tell what this is but it was totally dark at this point, I had to do the best I could with lightening it up on my computer.  There are houses that back up to this amazing lake with all the trees.  I can't even imagine living there.

After we got back we dropped off the car in Brooklyn and subway'd it back into the city.

So I honestly died over the trees.  I kept saying I could never live in California again and be a happy girl with how much I'm loving the fall.  Who woulda' thunk it???  I just can't get over how much I'm loving the seasons.  Last year we didn't really have much of a fall so I've been obsessed this year.  Autumn in New York really is everything everyone says it is and more.

Aren't they to die for? Our leaves change really quickly and then die so we never really get the colors (it's mostly poop green then brown). I took about a million pictures in Maine and NH two weeks ago as well, but I'm still working on my Toronto post from August. I'm such a bad blogger!!!

By the way, I really want to steal your peacoat!! Love it!
