One of the many sublime benefits of living and working in the Hudson Valley is being nature's constant witness. The breathtaking colors of the fall foliage turn our valley into a wonderland. Leaf peepers travel from nearby cities to partake in the bounty of our farms and orchards and to gaze at the natural beauty of the changing leaves. And it never gets old! Every year I am humbled by the exquisite scenery. I love the way the leaves skitter in the breeze when they fall and the way the sun glints through the newly bared branches of old maples. I believe the fall foliage of our valley has been referred to by writers greater than I, as resplendent. It certainly is.
