  1. Having fall color envy! (It was 91 degrees where I live last week.) I never realized how vibrant the fall colors were in New England until I visited the Berkshires one fall. We arrived after dark and stayed in a house in the woods overlooking a lake. When I awoke the following morning and looked out, my first reaction was that the woods were on fire! They were ablaze with such magnificent colors! Again - fall color envy!

  2. Ithaca is very pretty but Yale has the best foliage among the Ivies. One might suggest Hanover. But southern New England has a wider variety of species of trees, producing more different colors. Cambridge, Philadelphia, and New York are too “citified.” The Providence campus is over planted with sycamore. Princeton is in New Jersey.

    1. I'm going to guess by your tortured prose that you didn't have a snowball's chance in hell of attending Princeton (no judgement, I certainly didn't) and that your experience with New Jersey is mostly limited to the parts closest to the highway.

      I'd recommend expanding your horizons and foregoing dull regional snobbery, one of the worst tendencies of the socially insecure.

    3. Nice comment Dan. By the way, anonymous, the most beautiful thing I ever saw was on the Garden State Parkway after an ice storm. In harsh early afternoon light, the trees looked like they were covered in molten silver metal. Cars stopped on the road. It was breathtaking. As is with fall color it is often about the light.

  4. I must say
    its been a while since I saw a totally self assured gentleman with purse and blanket strolling the city streets...why do I get this feeling he is a professor on campus?

  5. The most beautiful campus in October, by far, is Bowdoin's. It is actually worth a day's drive to stroll those grounds in mid-October. Lovely.

  7. There was a recent pop-up on my browser, I think USA Today, of the 50 most beautiful campuses across the nation (Autumn or otherwise). I think there were 4 Ivies on their list - Yale coming in at 50. Surprising.

  8. Yale may be 50th as a campus, but old Eli is first in hockey rinks. Nothing compares to Ingalls Rink.
    Drop the puck!
