Armchair photo tours: A fall stroll at the Acton Arboretum

The Acton Arboretum, a 65-acre preserve with trails crossing meadows, gardens, and woods, is a pleasant place to go for a nature walk any season. The fall colors make a stroll here a bigger treat.

The arboretum was established in 1986 near Acton Center, 38 miles northwest of Boston. Five years later,  a community organization called The Friends of the Acton Arboretum was incorporated. Volunteers from the organization raise funds, donate plants and materials, and maintain the grounds.

If the weather fronts line up just right, snow can fall in Massachusetts in October. Here are two pictures I made at the arboretum the day after a snowstorm in late October.
