Who doesn’t love autumn in New England? And what’s more appealing than a picture-perfect drive through peak fall color? This slideshow follows a favorite Connecticut foliage drive through the countryside. We explored the landscape for classic red barns, rushing rivers, and trailing rock walls — just a few of the classic scenes that attract visitors to the area each year.
Follow the Connecticut roads from Goshen to Granby, as seen through the lens of photographer Julie Bidwell.
