A Riot of Color
(Leaving Saratoga Springs for Lake Placid & Lake George)
Oct. 6, 2012
Leaving Saratoga Springs with its sculptured horses and Victorian mansions
and its porches and domes
We have a greater appreciation for the beauty of both Nature
and beautifully built homes.
Houses disappear as we leer at the trees
Blue sky reappears, its beauty bringing me to my knees.
The road is a ribbon flanked by orange, yellow and red.
Dazzled by it all, what can I do instead?
Just enjoy the fall in all its glory.
That says it all; end of story!
P.S. The race track is a big draw in Saratoga Springs, with life-sized horses made from different materials & painted different colors, such as the one above in front of the race track entrance There was also a carousel near our hotel & I took a snapshot from the car:
