Fall foliage 2012 The Palisades New Jersey
The Palisades are a line of 300 to 540 foot high cliffs along the west side of the lower Hudson River in northeastern New Jersey and southern New York. They are among the most dramatic geologic features in the vicinity of New York City, forming a 20 mile long canyon of the Hudson north of George Washington Bridge. Last Saturday, October 27, was a peak foliage day at the Greenbrook Conservancy in the New Jersey part of the Palisades. Unfortunately the weather was overcast and the lighting was not the best, but it did help bring out the spectacular gold of the forest .
