Earlier posts this week show some fall colors we saw driving from VA to New Jersey and then through New York state. All along this road trip we were treated to scenes of nature’s wonderful color palette at this time of year.
However, to us there’s nothing quite like the autumn burst of color in New England, despite this being near the end of “leaf peeping” season.
Getting off the highway and driving along back roads and small towns is one of our favorite travel activities. It’s also when we really saw remaining “pops” of colors.
Nothing quite announces fall in New England more than a leaf-covered roadway and a white church steeple, even if at a distance.
This small town library was picturesque surrounded by autumn colors.
As was this New England seaport town also seen from a distance at scenic overview.
Add in another white church steeple and a lighthouse, plus some boats and it’s a typical New England scene.
All the above photos were taken while we were traveling in and around New London, CT. Most shots (except the last four) were taken through a car window as stopping was impractical in many places. Yes, there were troublesome power and utility lines; however, I tried to crop out as many as possible in the collages.
Hope that your weekend travels are colorful and fun — both would be great!
