The holiday weekend of Columbus day always reminds me of two things. The fall “peak” color is always somewhere around or soon after this holiday each year and always my most favorite time of year for full fall foliage color. The other thing it reminds me of is the holidays that always seem to come up quickly right after the Columbus holiday weekend. Halloween is just three weeks away now and then four weeks later is Thanksgiving weekend and four weeks after that is Christmas and a week after that is New Years. It is definitely the “holidays” time of year coming up quickly on us all once again.
