So usually in Western Ma the fall foliage season is pretty spectacular,....usually.

So if you are in a part of the country that has fall colors, you know that some years are better than others.

One year I was telling people where I work how great the colors were that year. They told me "are you kidding? This year it's not good at all". I sure didn't agree I thought it was a great year. I found that we had a number of very sunny days and so I was wearing Polaroid glasses a lot that were light brown. At some point I took them off and looked around and it was true,... it was a bad year.

Those glasses make all the colors pop out to look incredible. It has to be Polaroid and it has to be that color. You can get them cheaply at Walmart in their fishing area.

So a friend of mine was worried that some relatives were coming from overseas to enjoy our fall foliage that they heard so much about. But again it was a bad year, not up to usual standards, so I told her about getting the glasses which they did for all of their relatives. That friend and her relatives were blown away by our fall colors that year. The Reds look more redder, the yellows looked more yellow, the grass looked very green, the sky looked more blue, and the clouds were more defined.

So if you like fall colors or know someone who does,.. I suggest that you get those glasses, and if nothing else at the end of it you will have some polarized sunglasses. I like polarized glasses as they greatly reduce glare. That's why the fishermen like them so they can see better into the water as it takes off the surface glare. Hope you will trust me and give it a try.

Even in a good color year it makes it even more spectacular. Now the glasses are pretty cheap and they can scratch easily so just be careful of that.

BTW, today I went to the bank and had to wait at the drive through. and I said to myself gee the leaves are turning a bit already, then it occurred to me I was wearing those glasses and raised them and couldn't see the changes --73.159.xxx.xxx

We just got back from Colorado, the Aspens have just started changing in the high country. In spite of the fact that I always wear polarizing lenses, I can confirm that they are changing after looking at the photos on my phone, yep bright yellow to golden. --209.205.xxx.xx

OK,.but note,..they HAVE to be polarized, and... they HAVE to be that color. Just regular polarized glasses will do nothing if they are not the light brown ones. The cheap Walmart glasses work perfectly. --73.159.xxx.xxx

Wait! , wait!, wait! Snagging salmon ISN'T legal in CO anymore? Drat! Why stuff gotta keep changing? ( drat, don't answer that, I know, I know, its because us humans are stoopid and we keep doing things to screw life up for all the other critters on the earth. Oi!)

Grands and I made our own fall colors yesterday. Handprints in yellow, red, orange and brown. Use a marker to draw the stem structures. And, of course, those leaves are palmate! Oh, I kill me!

Was up in that big, big state up north last week. No good fall colors from Fairbanks to Delta. But pulled into my kids' neighborhood and Bam! Gorgeous colors. Can't say why, but, it was nice to see the colors at his house. And, it wasn't just mom-vision that made it so lovely by his place. Aspens, poplars, birches were glowing. --72.135.xxx.xx

Still Learning, if you are anywhere near Garden of Gods, I highly recommend taking the horse ride through the park. Well, if that is still available. Been many years since we did that, but it was magical.

Enjoy populous tremuloides! My favorite tree! --72.135.xxx.xx

Yes Wilma I agree,..big puffy clouds look better too,..more defined.

t walmart has some

from under 5.00 to about 11.00 (probably some at more $ but I just did a quick look) the more expensive ,..prob do not scratch as easily,..the cheap ones do so you need to take extra care with those.

This looks like the rt color

Hey Amy,

I'm not sure, but maybe they might bring out the color of an alligator......if you want maybe I can send you a box of Ma leaves. I see where some Vt and NH are closing some roads to stop the long lines of leaf peppers.
