AONE Western Mass Fall Foliage Tour this Saturday!

Okay, it's on!!!

The forecast for Saturday calls for dry roads, partly sunny skies, and temperatures in the upper sixties­in November, we can't ask for anything better than that! So the AONE Fall Foliage Tour (a.k.a. the AONE Indian Summer Sortie) is set to roll this Saturday, November 5th! You can count on a fun frolic through the hills of Western Massachusetts surrounded by our beautiful New England autumn foliage, which is turning colors quite late this year so there should be plenty left to enjoy. Peter Walker’s promising us an interesting, scenic, trafficless, twisty route through the falling leaves. Here's the scoop:

We're going to meet up at the Fillin' Station Diner in South Deerfield, the same place we've started our tours a couple of times in the past. PLAN TO BE THERE AT 10:30AM, because we're going to shove off promptly at 11:00, and finding us will be difficult after that. From there, we'll head out on our Sortie, which will be a marvelous back-roads romp that'll take about two hours, perhaps a little more. We'll end up in Shelburne Falls, a scenic town with several restaurants we can choose from for lunch. We can then decide what we want to do from there, either separately or collectively. Shelburne Falls is just off Route 2, so simply heading back to civilization from there is an option.

How to find the Fillin' Station: From any direction, take I-91 to Exit 24 for South Deerfield. Head south on US Route 5 (left at the end of the ramp if coming from the south, right if from the north). Look for a big DINER sign a short distance on the left. It's easy to find, but there are also maps (and a photo of the diner) at www.velocissima.com.

This could be the last chance this year for good fling with your fellow Alfisti, so don't miss it! See you Saturday!

Make sure to post some pictures of the scenery (and the cars) for the rest of us to enjoy, after the drive. I for one have never been to that part of the country and would enjoy the pictures.
