      I wonder how this and other Vermont fall foliage / trees compare to those in Japan. According to Wikipedia, Momijigari (紅葉狩?), from the Japanese momiji (紅葉?), "red leaves" or "maple tree" and kari (狩り?), "hunting", is the Japanese tradition of going to visit scenic areas where leaves have turned red in the autumn. It is also called kanpūkai (観楓会?).[1] in Hokkaidō[2]
Many Japanese people take part in this, with the cities of Nikkō and Kyoto being particularly famous destinations. The tradition is said to have originated in the Heian era as a cultured pursuit, and is the reason why many deciduous trees can be found in the Kyoto area.

                                             Pick your favorite colored leaf.








         We need hands, the more the better. Will you lend yours? Pick up litter whenever you see it.
                        








                                                 Lets take a Vermont leaf peeping walk
                                               and do a little litter pickin along the way.
                           Litter picking is a fun, addictive, challenging, family oriented, soul refreshing,          community based year round activity.
Fall foliage adds to the rewards.

 Leaves are colorful and yummy.
 I munch on them for mulch and chew on them for compost.
