We began here in Warwick and drove up to New Paltz on route 208 to 299 to catch the mountains up to Mohonk blaze out the oranges and yellows—right up to the sky.
We drove back down 55 to where it merged with 208, and that’s where we caught the views of the trestle.
The weather was mild, so this was a perfect day. Some people are griping because this is not the most beautiful fall ever, and maybe the reds are not as vibrant as they might be, but it’s beautiful around here, so I will simply share it with you in photos.
The colors have passed their peak now, but tuck this drive away for next year. It will make you feel good inside.
