New England, where I live, is famous for “fall color.” Visitors that New Englanders refer to as “leaf peepers” come from all over to admire the bright display, especially when the leaves reach peak color.

In our part of central Connecticut, that’s usually around Columbus Day weekend. In Canada, that would be around Thanksgiving Day.

This year, though, the leaves “peaked” here a week late. So, I missed them.

Because, for the week of peak foliage here, I traveled in the opposite direction.

Where I saw a different range of fall colors.
