Autumn in the North Country
For those of us who live in the North Country, fall is a magical time of year when Nature turns to her palette of red, gold, orange and shades of green to paint majestic scenery for all to behold. But it is a sight that changes quickly, as swirling winds coax leaves to drop from tree branches and the landscape prepares for winter snows. Before that happens, we pause to enjoy some of the natural beauty that graces Fort Drum and the surrounding area.
