Autumn is by far my most cherished season of the year. The sole intent of this blog posting is to share 10 of my favorite scenes from Autumn of 2016. They are presented in no particular order.
All of the photos shown below were taken from locations in New Hampshire, except for the first one which was taken in the nearby State of Maine.
For most of these photos, the caption includes a link to one of my previous blog reports that provides additional details about the location where the photo was taken. The absence of a link means that I've written no blog reports for that particular location.

Looking northward up the Rocky Branch Valley into the Presidential Range Dry River Wilderness. Mt. Washington is at center with its summit hidden by clouds. Photo taken from a place with unofficial name of Rocky Branch Dome.
Photo taken from an off-trail ledge overlooking Sawyer Ponds (foreground), and in the background are (L to R): Mt. Tremont; Owls Cliff; Chocorua; Paugus.

|Midday view looking northward up the Crawford Notch. Photo taken from a steep bare-rock slab which is frequented by ice-climbers when it becomes coated with thick ice in winter.|
Late afternoon view looking southward down the Crawford Notch. Photo taken from an off-trail ledge located near a forgotten place known as 'New Cascade'.
|Photo taken at late afternoon along a brook near Sawyer Pond. It was about midway through the Autumn Season when the red maple leaves were just beginning to fall from their trees.|
|Photo taken from a typical old New England farm road near my home.|
View of Presidential Range from Owl's Head peak on Cherry Mountain. Photo taken toward end of foliage season when the reds are gone, and orange colors are more predominate.
Photo taken from Bald Cap Peak ledges. The vista is looking eastward down the Androscoggin River Valley toward western Maine. Photo taken toward end of foliage season when the reds are gone, and orange/yellow colors are more predominate.
