Counts' Farm is always beautiful in fall, but you can see more from the top of the big hill.

Clarence Herpich took me to this place when I was in High School, claiming it had the most colorful Maples of anywhere in the area. I couldn't agree more. The Vinland Valley is a beautiful panorama, but Count's Farm has it when it comes to luminous, almost fiery looking Maples. They also photograph beautifully.

I like some of the old tree-lined neighborhoods right in the heart of town--from about Elm to King, and between 5th & 10th. October is a good time to go for a walk there. Lots of good Halloween decorations to be seen as well.

We always go to those neighborhoods to trick-or-treat. By then, most of the leaves have fallen and the kids love walking through them and kicking them around.
