Cornish-Windsor Bridge

Cornish, New Hampshire

Tangerine, rose, ruby and gold are just some of the colors that carpet the tree tops of New England in autumn. To see them in their splendor is like walking into a page from an old-fashioned wall calendar. Check out the fall foliage around the Cornish-Windsor Covered Bridge, which spans the Connecticut River, connecting New Hampshire to Vermont. Here, during peak viewing season, late September through mid-October, things get mighty picturesque. Don't forget your cameras!
