Gearing Up (Schoharie Valley, Part 1)

I know some people may not want to hear this, but I'm officially declaring it Fall. Don't blame me -- it's in the air (and, well, school is back in session). I am so ready. Ok, maybe not totally ready -- you won't see me lugging home any pumpkins just yet -- but I did take a drive out Schoharie way this weekend to swing by one of my favorite fall destinations: The Carrot Barn.

How did I go so long without even knowing this place was here!? [Thanks Amy ;)] I forgot my camera, so the little point & shoot had to do the trick. It was the perfect time to go (no crowds yet), and I can't help thinking that the next time I make the trip the mums will be all reds, yellows, oranges and purples, and the leaves on the trees will be coloring the mountainside. I love fall. I wait all year for it to come back around. And I try to squeeze as much out of it as I possibly can. Let the season begin!

What are some of your favorite, must-do fall activities?
