This weekend I took a trip to Otego, New York with my Aunt Faith and a friend to visit EvenSong Dell , which is owned by friends of hers. EvenSong Dell is a rental house in upstate New York. It sits surrounded by fields and forests. A glorious place to hike, think, and be refreshed.
On Saturday some of us went on a short hike. Albert Camus declared: “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” And he is right. The deciduous forests in New York are entering their showiest season. The colors were spectacular even though the day was a bit dreary.
The fields of goldenrod were impressive too. A few purple asters were mixed into the fields, being very noticeable due to their reluctance to conform to the yellow dress code.
Many trees were in the process of changing leaf color.
I really enjoy walking through the woods.
I stopped by one of the ponds on the property to take a few pictures.
It was a very nice weekend full of conversation, stories, thinking, eating, hiking, and reading.
