About Today’s Photo:

The inevitable transition to winter—or, more accurately, “stick season”—is evident up at Windekind Farm. The high winds of the past few days has made an impact on the fall colors with the higher reaches of Bald Hill (at 3000′) already “gone to sticks”. Those same hill will likely sport a layer of snow by tomorrow morning.

About Today’s Photo:

The mix of hardwoods below the Hawk Watch (the prominent cliff on the northern side of Hinesburg Hollow Road) make for a lovely contrast in colors during foliage season. The maples and birch put on an early show of yellows, oranges, and reds, while the oaks and beech—still green in this image—hold off a bit to change a week or so later.
