Fall in love

Autumn in upstate New York soothes the soul. Benign weather, intense foliage colours, apple picking, the aroma of cinnamon doughnut lingering in the cool air and halloween for kids from three to a hundred and three....its a spa treatment every busy people should try. The fall foliage is short lived, no more than 2 weeks after which it gets decidedly grey and even depressing - casual tourists would be lucky to get the timing right.

We trekked a little at Taughannock Falls, a taller and much less touristed waterfall than its famous cousin, Niagara, and went back to the car for our next stop. I took up the tourist brochure to see where we should go next, its cover boldy proclaimed - "Fall in love".....
