      Here in the Finger Lakes area of upstate NY you will find some of the most beautiful foliage during the Autumn.  What kinds of things do you like to do during the cooler months of Autumn?  

      Apple picking is an annual event with is the annual Greek Peak Ski Resort picnic followed by a visit to Hallenbeck’s Cider Mill.  It’s so cool to watch them make the cider and the freshly made donuts are delicious!  We never leave without a gallon of one and a dozen of the other.

      Shopping is something else we tend to do in the cooler months.  We are less than 90 minutes from Rochester, Geneva (LOVE those Outlets), Binghamton and Ithaca...making it a pretty easy day trip to do some good shopping.

      That’s what’s happening in my neck of the about yours?

        • My mom and I were talking just this morning about her growing up in Syracuse. She said when she was a kid she liked to walk on the fallen leaves; they made a crunch under her feet.

          I lived for 2 years in the Pacific Northwest and experienced the beauty of fall colors really for the first time in my life.

          I’m now on Maui, we do have 4 seasons but they are very subtle, only visible to full time residents.

          I must admit I miss living on the mainland.

        • I hope to see Hawaii someday.  My husband isn’t a fan of travel that involves flying so if i do see Hawaii, it will probably be with one of my children or a friend!
