Multi-colored splashes of sugar maple leaves carpet the ground, disturbed only by squirrels scrounging for acorns and the woodsman's autumnal pilgrimage to cut firewood. Many happy days of the old man's life were spent in these hardwood hills, and he journeys here each fall with his memories.
Spend a day with him and share his life in a day.
