October in the Southern Tier

October 2006 in the Southern Tier of New York was particularly pretty (and we were very busy), but I was able to get out on a couple of beautiful days. These pictures were all taken within 20 miles of our house at some of my favorite places, and a few new ones!

Suggestions are welcome - just send me an email.
