Green Gives Way To Gold

The Colors of Autumn Are On The Way

MONTVILLE
After one of the hottest and muggiest summers in recent memory, it's finally that time of year to don a sweatshirt and step outside to take a deep breath of crisp autumn air. This scene wouldn't be complete without the gorgeous site of God's artwork in the multi-colored trees and shrubs of the season.

Welcome, Autumn!

MONTVILLE After one of the hottest and muggiest summers in recent memory, it's finally that time of year to don a sweatshirt and step outside to take a deep breath of crisp autumn air. This scene wouldn't be complete without the gorgeous site of God's artwork in the multi-colored trees and shrubs of the season.

 There were many newly-planted types of ferns, shrubs and other native plants at the

entrance to Pyramid Mountain

Natural Historical Area thanks to the gardeners-for-a-day who participated in the fall planting event. Some of the vegetation planted were mountain laurel, New Jersey tea, sweet flag iris, cinnamon fern,

cardinal flower and golden ragwort. Several species of plants were provided by the Willowwood Arboretum in Chester.

 The young ladies of Girl Scout Troop 220 of Kinnelon helped out with the planting as part of the requirement to earn

their Sign of the World badge.

 While visiting Pyramid Mountain on Saturday, Oct. 5, 2002, this writer went along with her children on a brief walk along the blue trail that was covered with yellow, brown and red leaves.

 This is the best time of the year to take advantage of the more than 13,000 acres of parks, hiking trails and historic and cultural sites maintained by the

Morris County Park Commission. There are also three award-winning golf courses to choose from if that's your sport. Places like Fosterfield's Living Historical Farm (Morristown) or the Great Swamp Outdoor Education Center (Chatham) are wonderful for a weekend family outing, especially if your family loves animals and nature.
