I went back to Chestnut Ridge Sunday evening for another look at the beautiful Autumn scenery. The sky was overcast but once I got into the woods, that didn't really matter so much. I followed a lovely little brook, down into a small ravine, over the rocks and leaves, and only turned back when the sky began to get darker. There's a lot to like about Chestnut Ridge. It's huge, which means you can lose yourself in the beauty of nature without civilization - cell-phone towers or power lines or even other people - breaking your reverie. Huge also means the really pleasant knowledge that there's so much more to discover. And of course, it's flat out gorgeous there.
