One afternoon after I was out of class, I drove up to Sugarloaf when the trees were beginning to change colors. This Volkswagen Westfalia was parked in front of a perfect view, so, naturally, I took about 100 photos. In the fall, I’m often at Sugarloaf to check out the foliage, knowing that the more colorful and bare the trees get, the sooner I will be back skiing. Regardless of the time of year, a drive up to Sugarloaf never disappoints—especially when the foliage is showing off.
