Ah, Jackie--I'm with you. I remember the lovely smell of burning leaves in the autumn, and the fun as a child of running and jumping into the pile of raked leaves. And there is a another, indefinable smell of autumn in New England--a sort of crispness--something in the air other than burning leaves. Every once in a while here in California in the morning I get a whiff that reminds me. Enjoy your stay, Chris and Susan, and your trip along the way.
