Fall Foliage, Day 22 - Four Mile Creek State Park, New York, to Green Lakes State Park, New York

THIS WEATHER. SO GOOD. It’s the perfect temperature for leggings/pants/sweaters/scarves, or for running and not feeling completely disgusting. We have not had to use air-conditioning/heat since we started this trip and it is amazing. It’s a little chilly first thing in the morning (like today), but I just take my breakfast outside and sit in the sun with a sweater on… :3

Which is what I did today while waiting for the park staff to help troubleshoot our electrical. We were getting an error yesterday that there was open ground,” meaning that none of our AC appliances were working. After some poking around, the electrician wound up replacing the park’s plug and we were able to squeeze out a little more charge for our batteries before packing up.

Christian also spent some time fixing our sofa bed - the finishing nails didn’t hold up so well so he added brackets/screws to attach the slats - while I did some general maintenance - replacing weatherproofing seal on our storage compartment - and prepped for leaving.

The hitch-up process went off without a hitch today, and we were on the road with no problems. The colors of the trees on the side of the road are so beautiful!

We started the actual fall foliage” part of the tour today, cobbled together from several best places for fall foliage” articles:

One momentous note on our drive - Christian actually passed three cars!! Granted, they were all in a row, and yes, they had their caution lights on - but still. We passed people in the RV and that does not happen very often. In fact, we’re pretty sure it’s the first time it’s happened all trip!

The drive from Skaneateles to Spafford, New York, is number 13 from T&L’s list - for good reason! We were reminded of the English countryside with all the rolling hills.

We made it to Green Lakes State Park Campground in Fayetteville, New York (20 minutes east of Syracuse) and found an unreserved spot for the night. It started raining pretty hard, but we still don’t have any leaks!
