It turns out the boy with the bike (t.b.w.t.b.) has a house upstate, and guess where I spent the weekend? You guessed it!
We left Friday afternoon. A couple of his friends joined us, so we had a fun packed car. The road was not that crowded since we left early enough to avoid traffic. The ride was fun, a lot of talking and tree watching. The fall colors are starting to show much more now than since my last road trip. Especially, on our way back to the city we saw very beautiful tress and hiking trails, since we took the scenic route through the Catskills. Really beautiful!
