Litchfield County is 945 square miles of farmland and hills and country towns in northwest Connecticut with a reasonable enough ratio of art galleries to fly-fishing shops to please old-timers and weekenders alike. General stores, town historical societies and volunteer fire departments are common. Farm stands offer vegetables and eggs on the honor system: pick what you want and leave your money in the box.
And during peak leaf-peeping season, usually mid to late October, things are even better. The lush greens of late summer turn to deep reds, burning oranges and bright yellows in the hills that rise behind barns and cornfields and glacial lakes.
