Fall Foliage Tour

You know those times when everyone you know is out of town?  That would be me – including John being away.

 

So how about I take you on a fall foliage tour?  It was cloudy on Saturday, which is a good type of weather for taking foliage pictures, although it would have been better if the sun was a bit brighter through the clouds.

I snagged John’s clear glasses to ride in since I didn’t need my shades, but still need eye protection.

I’ll just let the shots do most of the talking.

How a smidge of video?  Don’t try this at home, kids.

You can hear me crunching over the leaves 😀

Arrival in Lake George!

I made a couple of stops for my snack.  I saw the display at this store, which really cracked me up.

A combined win-loss score for all 3 teams is 2-11, with both wins belonging to the Bills.  Not a happy sight in this window. (Go Broncos!)

First up was Lake George Baking Company for an Apple Snitzel Tart. It’s really just a mini apple crumb pie.  And a then latte from Cafe Vero, complete with latte art!  I took these to the dock to eat.

I know you want a better picture of that tart, right?

That was a nice snack, although I was getting chilly here by the water.  There is always a breeze coming off the lake.

Is this tree not amazing in color?

Then homeward.

Fall colors really just can squeeze at my heart. They are so beautiful.

I love the burning bush.

It’s glorious!

I took a million pictures, but I think that’s enough. 😀  What a wonderful ride today.

    Know what makes it fun reading your blog? That you have a life outside of (in addition to) food/eating/dieting. How beautiful everything was.

    Haha – whether I have a life or not is up for debate, but I agree – the fall colors are beautiful 😀

    I love all of the tree pictures!!! So beautiful – I’m afraid we are going to miss out this season – the leaves haven’t even started to change yet!!! Glad that I can at least see the beauty around you!!
    And that tart is one of my favorite treats you have had – looks tasty!!

    Poor Mr. Helen is absolutely despairing over the Giants this year. I let him yell and tell them they suck though since he’s loved them since he was a boy.

    Your color shots are just beautiful, thanks for sharing!

    It’s been awhile since I’ve said it, but I still so envy your easy access to so many beautiful dedicated bike paths. I imagine our leaves are turning rapidly up in the park, but who would know since it’s CLOSED! Here in the valley, just a tint of color here and there.

    Lori,

    What a beautiful ride you had, I enjoyed looking at your pictures. The leaves here in northern Ga. have not even started yet, so it is nice to see how the leaves are showing where you are. Yummy looking apple tart!!
