Fall's Finale in Breathtaking Color

  
     Good Morning,
     The 2014 Fall foliage season blazed in breathtaking color all over the Adirondacks last weekend.  It has been several years since the reds and golds have crescendo-ed simultaneously. The spectacle was intensified by the sheer brilliance of every hue.  In anticipation of the peak, a record number of leaf-peepers made their pilgrimage along Route 28, up Bald Mountain, and to the top of McCauley Mountain to witness the explosive chromaticity; evidence that the earth is still the leader when it comes to beauty and perfection.  
     Although I appreciated the patronage that large number of tourists contributed to my hometown and region, I was grateful not to venture out among the crowds.  Instead, I remained at home in my own enchanted space.  On horseback I visited all of my favorite vantage points to absorb the symphonic beauty that will soon fade into monochromatic grayness of winter.  With each leaf that falls I whisper a grateful prayer and force myself to accept what is to come.  Until that time arrives I will bask in the radiance of this annual gift from nature.
