Fall Foliage at the Peak of Color

Have you noticed?  Foliage throughout the Lower Susquehanna River Watershed has been painted with the brilliant colors of autumn, so now is the time to get out there and have a look.  Why not make a collection?  You can pick up an inexpensive scrap book or photo album at the craft store to press and label the varieties you find.  Uncle Tyler Dyer is already busy adding to the project he assembled last year.  You can use his exhibit as a reference for identifying and learning a little bit more about the leaves you find.
