Abby, road.
This brook north of the town of Sherman, CT was renamed in 2001, back to the original native american "Naromiyocknowhusunkatankshunk", which means "water flowing down the hill".

Roadside scenery between Bennington VT and the NY state line.
Nice neighborhood color on a maple tree.
This scene beside the road just after we crossed into NY on Rte 9 was attracting dozens of photographers.
One worries that they haven't caught just the right photo... so there's a tendency to take a few extras, "just in case"
Nicer ? Or is it just the same ?
I love the reflection in the pond.
Still love it.
Yup I think I have this now.
The sun was dropping fast as we approached Brunswick, NY. But there were still some colors we weren't sure we'd seen. Nice contrast - too bad about the power lines.
