There are plenty of things to do in Woodstock New York for Fall. We decided to go on a 4 day trip to the mountains and enjoy the changing of the leaves. The drive during this time of year is breath taking because of the trees bringing in Fall. As the sun begins to set, the colors of the leaves appear to be a Monét painting.
I would recommend bringing a winter coat because of the cool air that comes in at night in the mountains. But don’t bring your boots because you will surely want to stop at Pegasus Shoe Store for a new pair. They have an incredible variety for everyone and the sales people are a complete delight. We walked out with 2 pairs of boots!
Ashokan Reservoir – Ulster County, New York
As you drive up these whiny roads you feel like your in the middle of no where. The trees are beautiful and that is all you will see until you get to the beginning of Ashokan Reservoir and the sky and mountains open up all around you. Mother nature is definitely in control of our planet, she has created the perfect water system for New Yorkers to drink. This reservoir supplies 40% of the drinking water to New York city.

There are thousand of people that go to this event so get there early because if will take you all day to go look at everything. The best part is there is plenty to eat for the day from fried dough to chile hot dog that you will not be able to finish. Every knitter is wearing their prized sweater so as you walk around it’s like a fashion show on the go!
