Earlier this week, Greg asked me and Olive, the pug, if we wanted to go for a ride to do a little Leaf Peeping. We both said yes, of course, and off we went. I let him decide where we would go and Olive and I sat back and enjoyed the ride.
We headed up north toward New Hampshire where the leaves are nearing peak.
Here are a few things we saw.

|Was there ever any doubt?|
When we got close to Hillsborough, New Hampshire we saw a sign indicating that the Franklin Pierce Homestead was close by so we stopped to admire his beautiful house on that fine fall day. For those who don’t know, Pierce was the 14th President of the United States from 1853 to 1857 and the only President from New Hampshire.
Moving on, we finally made it to Keene, New Hampshire where we had a nice lunch outside with Olive at a local establishment called Local and then a little after two o’clock, we turned around and admired the leaves all the way back to Massachusetts.
I love fall in New England! It simply sings and dances with color.
What can be better than that?
Nothing, in my book.
