FROM THE DESK OF Bob Norton

We have frogs. With all the critters that are finding our pool, I wouldn’t be surprised if we found a small alligator one day.

We’re not that close to a bayou, so it would be quite a trek for an alligator. But then again, a snapping turtle did find the pool ... Last summer, while waiting for the new liner to be installed, we had frogs, so I wasn’t entirely surprised to find them this summer. I’m finding a few of them at a time in the skimmer, swimming in circles. They are small frogs, so they must be traveling at night and hopping in the pool. While talking about critters in the pool, I didn’t realize spiders can run on water. They have to surf when the pump is running, but at night, they just zip along the top of the water. They visit regularly and end up in the skimmer when the pump kicks on in the morning. Luckily, they aren’t the poisonous varieties.

Humans have built some pretty spectacular things on this planet, but there’s nothing quite as stunning as the simple perfection of a tree. They’re beautiful year-round, but fall is the time when trees don their best dresses, lining the nation’s highways and hills in eye-catching shades of red, orange, yellow, and gold. If strolling through a grove of colorful trees is one of your favorite fall activities, then it might be time for a pilgrimage in search of the most colorful foliage America has to offer. Autumn is an underrated travel season, so airfare to the top leaf-lined places in the country is more affordable than you think. There are also plenty of prime destinations, so whether you’d like to trek far away or search out stunning fall colors close to home, there’s sure to be something out there for you. Here are a few of the best spots to visit for postcard-quality views in each region. LEAVING FOR THE LEAVES W here to V acation for P eak F all F oliage

THE NORTHEAST: THE KANCAMAGUS HIGHWAY, NEW HAMPSHIRE

New England is famous for its autumn leaves, but among its dozens of vacation-worthy destinations, a drive down Kancamagus Highway (which locals call “The Kanc”) should be at the top of your to-do list in the first few weeks of October. Dubbed “The Ultimate New Hampshire Fall Foliage Drive” by New England Foliage, the 30-mile journey offers gorgeous views of tree- lined rivers and ponds, a route through a mountain pass, and plenty of stop-offs for photography, hiking, and camping.
