This past autumn the fall colors were just a little off the norm in many areas of the country. On my trip to the Finger Lakes region of upper New York in October, I found that the best color was at the highest elevations between each of the lakes. I spent one morning after sunrise driving many of the backroads above Watkins Glen and came across this gem of a road. Ironically it was appropriately signed as “Maple Lane”. With the brilliant collage of colors enveloping the road, I decided to name it “Candy Lane” instead!
