The Adirondacks Get Serious About Autumn - Part 2

This photo was taken not in the Adirondack Park, but in my yard on the north side of the farm house. There's the orange berries of a Mountain Ash, red apples and colorful Sugar Maple. That's my north hay field in the background:

And just south of my farm in the Adirondack Park, a scene of autumn. These grassy roadsides are very often filled with grazing turkeys:

And speaking of turkeys, this flock must surely have numbered over a hundred. I couldn't get them all in the photo:

On my way home from the farm, I glimpsed some real autumn color off down a side road and turned onto it for a closer look:

A real mixture of hardwood species:

Color, color everywhere:

Notice the mailbox in the lower right hand corner of the photo. Someone lives there, amidst all that beauty, in a home set so far back into the woods that I couldn't even see the house:

By the time this posts, these pictures will be over a week old and I'll have taken new pictures of the ever developing, colorful foliage. I fear they'll be lots of other "leaf peepers" on the highway, though, so I'll have to drive cautiously:
