Leaf Peeping

It's leaf peeping season, so we took a trip to Connecticut to admire the spectacular fall colors. The photos below don't do the trees justice, but you get the idea.

First up, the White Memorial Conservation Area in Litchfield County is a fantastic place to walk through the forest and enjoy the scenery and wildlife. It skirts Bantam Lake, which is also beautiful.

Nearby, Kent Falls State Park provided beautiful views of the falls and the changing color of the surrounding woods. This was a steep trail, but worth it.

We had a 360° view of the area from the highest point of Mount Tom State Park. Lighting conditions were harsh this day, so the colors appear more washed out than they were. Next time, I will remember to use an ND filter. 

The walk to the top on the Tower Trail is fairy easy, but steep and slippery at times.
