Fall is on our doorstep.  My personal favorite time of the year.

Why?

Cinnamon donuts.  Harvest festivals.  Beautiful leaves, A nip in the air.  Cider, both hot and cold.  Long walks in the woods.  The smell of a burning wood fire. Digging out your favorite, old sweater.  Maple syrup on a stack of pancakes.  Farm stands that start to turn "pumpkin orange."  Hot apple crisp pie cooling on the window sill.

How about you?  What is your favorite thing about an Upstate New York autumn?
