New York in the fall should be considered one of the “wonders of the world”. It is spectacular. The air is crisp and smells of leaves and frosty air, the streams, rivers and lakes are filling up offering clear and cold water, the wildlife is roaming around more freely in search of tasty treats under the fallen leaves, and the skies overhead are more blue and full of white puffy clouds than ever.
We enjoy this time of year for trail riding, hiking, 4 wheeling, and relaxing. Here are some wonderful pictures from just one weekend on our property. I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I did living them!
Our ice pond is stunning. It’s called the “ice pond” as it is a pond we built shallow enough so it will freeze quickly and be used for ice skating all winter long.
The leaves are such a beautiful backdrop. I can’t get enough of their colors!
Riding the horses with the sounds of the leaves under their feet and a happy dog chasing blowing leaves.
Pumpkin sales, carving and trick or treating (Bruizer and Two Bit of the book the Outsiders) end one of the most beautiful months.
And a sneak peek at the beautiful cabin we finally have for our campground by the ice pond. More on that in my next post……..

I love your ‘ice pond’. I grew up with a glacial lake in my back yard (100 feet deep in the deepest places), and had to wait for the ice to be thick enough for Mom and Dad to approve skating, which was usually well after the new year.
