Fall-ing

From 2006_10_22
I feel it in the air. The weather person says we've seen our last 80 degree day. I just couldn't help but think of good ole Phoenix. I remember one year where there were no days in October with a day with tempratures below 90 degrees, or was that 100 degrees? I still miss it. Though a nice fall day does have a certain feeling to it. I notice it much more here in the NorthEast than I ever did before. Even in New Mexico, where we had fall it just kind of came, turned brown...er and then turned cold. Here, the sky changes color. The washed out blue that you see through the haze of summer heat and humidity goes away and you start to see a deeper more intense blue that makes you feel like things have come into some sort of sharper focus. Everyone comes back from their vacation homes in the Hamptons and the city starts to buzz a little more.

These pictures are from a few falls back. Sky, Anna, Scott and I always take a fall trip to somewhere in the area. We usually manage to cover quite a few states. I think our record was seven different states in one weekend. It's always nice to take a weekend to relax and appreciate the East Coast instead of keeping your head down and buried in the New York City sand ....or smog.
