Fall, Old Sandwich Road, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA

Living on the coastal plain of Massachusetts, I sometimes miss not seeing mountains. Although many people do live here, once outside the metropolitan area of Boston, I am pleasantly surprised by the amount of greenery that remains. Pine and oak forests, rolling hills, fields, and sandy soil are common elements. Much of the "New World" still looks and feels natural - except now we have good internet.

Fall seems to be peaking now - on some trees, it's already over. Old Sandwich Road of today began as a trail for the Native Americans and reportedly became the first public road in the new nation. It's not much different now - largely unpaved, towering trees line much of it, farms, streams - nature's beauty held in good stead for the future.

Roads are quieter, tourists have gone home - it's time to start thinking ahead to the holidays and the coming winter.
