My family went leafing this weekend. Leafing is basically driving around looking at the fall colours. It was a great day Saturday even though it was very windy. I always forget how harrowing the drive up Smokey is, especially for a passenger. One mistake and you'll very quickly meet the ocean. I held my breath the whole way up.
Did you ever feel really, really small? That's a whole lot of ocean!

There was quite a bit of traffic, a lot of tourists, in the Highlands. The Thanksgiving weekend is a great time to "do the trail" (the Cabot Trail) and look at the changing leaves. I saw plates from all Maritime provinces, Quebec, Ontario, Alberta and states like Florida, Ohio and Maine. We passed a lot of tour buses and RVs. We only did a part of the trail ourselves. I suspect a lot of the tourists are also here for the Celtic Colours Festival.
