this photo I took of Pondside Park, several miles north of me in Bergen County, NJ. Even as late as earlier in the week, temperatures soared into the 70s around here.
But this weekend, as in so many parks around me—and even in my own backyard—the shift to fall is complete. It came through three days of rain that lowered the temperatures and set leaves hurtling to the ground in droves.
With a day of sunlight that was cooler, but not yet fragile, it was no time to stay inside.
