Fall in Sugar Loaf, NY

We’ve had a beautiful resplendent fall Here in Sugar Loaf, NY! Many of the leaves have dropped, but some are still up and colorful, and a few are still green.

Here are a few photos I took at the edge of town last week…

Looking east. Sugar Loaf, NY

Looking east (yes, east) as the sun set. It was time to go home.

With all the rain we’ve been having, I’m not sure how long the splendor will last, so visit us soon to catch the last hurrah of fall and start some early holiday shopping!

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
