Fall Colours of New Hampshire

In U.S., fall season is said to be very scenic season. It is the season of the year between summer and winter, lasting from September to December in the Northern Hemisphere. Fall is also known as Autumn. In fall, days rapidly get shorter and cooler, the nights rapidly get longer. During this time, deciduous trees loose their leaves. But before loosing the leaves, they changes the colours from green to yellow, orange, red and brown. North East states of U.S. have scenic fall and many people visit these states to enjoy the fall colours. We were quite excited to see the fall colours. So, we planned for a two day trip (14-15 Oct 2006) to New Hampshire state. Its a small state bordered by Canada and the U.S. states of Maine, Massachusetts, and Vermont.
We were 7 friends for this trip: me, Mandar, Dipali, Shetti, Asha, Venkat and BV Shrinivas. For two days, we enjoyed the foliage a lot, and this trip turned out to be the most memorable trip in U.S. for all of us.

From past few months, I did several treks/trips in India as well as in US. But I couldn't narrate any of them. This time Mandar and Venkat got so impressed by New Hampshire trip that both of them wrote down about their experiences in just a week. This reminded me my previous Dive Aagar trip, where Jui and Sachin took similar initiative and narrated the trip.
Mandar's writing was easy, so I modified and extended it at some places. Venkat wrote more philosophical, but very nice. I couldn't dare to touch his writing.
