The trip to the Finger Lakes was short but productive. I had hoped to hit the peak of fall color in at least some area of the region and, fortunately enough, I succeeded. As usual there were spots where fall color was still a week or two from peak and other spots where the leaves had already vanished from the trees. In most locations, though, there was color in abundance.
One such location was Letchworth State Park. I had seen it on the map and seen some images from it, but I had no idea of what the park actually looked like. As it turned out, it was and is enormous. There was literally a traffic jam at the gate I entered. I hoped it wasn’t just to view fall colors. Fortunately, that wasn’t the case. One of the largest craft fairs in the area was there that weekend and I was caught up in the ensuing traffic. After I cleared the area where the fair was the rest of the park was relatively uncrowded. I don’t think that I captured anything spectacular there, but the color was at or near peak. These images are from trees and buildings in the park that caught my eye. Enjoy.
