Re: Need help: VT/NH trip OCT 14 to 19

After looking at the photos in this forum, I think Peacham will still be nice. But I think Woodstock, Vermont and south of there would be better. The Woodstock, New Hampshire area may be alright in the lowlands, but the highlands may be gone by. I would work south of there. The leaves are hanging on...

Re: Green Mountains and Peacham areas - October 15-18

This has been a weird foliage season so it's hard to predict how the foliage will be. The foliage should still be good in Peacham early in your vacation so do that first. After that I would wander around from Killington and south of there. Woodstock should be okay also. The key to the foliage in the...

Re: Help Planning 1st time VT visit + leaf lover!

Foliage in the Stowe area may not be good at that time. Burlington is in the Champlain Valley, which has a warmer climate than the rest of the State. Foliage turns later. You should have decent foliage down the west side of the State. I prefer doing route 116 from South Burlington to East Middlebury...

Re: Rain Shall Not Deter The Hard Core Leaf Peeper!

Well, you've had a weird foliage vacation this year. When we went out Wednesday the color was lifeless and by Friday the colors were eye popping. Mom and I are still debating about a foliage ride for today. I can see a patch of blue sky on the western horizon and I'm sipping my 3rd cup of coffee, so...

From there we took a side road to Cabot. We took the Danville Hill Road from Cabot to route US 2 and then the Mack Mountain...

Re: From Grafton to St. Johnsbury (NEK)

We are not having a good foliage year this year. I was up in the Northeast Kingdom yesterday with CTYankee and it was not good. There is a lot of color, but it was dull and lifeless. The conditions seem to be state wide. I would do scenic drives in that area. Route 35 to Chester and route 103 from t...

CTYankee and pwt54 at Lewis Pond

This will be a short report because I'm doing another ride. First of all, the roads going to the Lewis Pond Overlook are in the best condition I've ever seen. Cars will have no problem driving there. The foliage is not good. The color is there, but it is dull. It's almost seems like the hot and dry ...

Re: So Mother Nature Has Thrown Us A Curve Ball...

Tent caterpillar damage has been spotty in Lamoille County. Elmore Mountain on the Morrisville side took a hit, but the Elmore side was untouched. I drove route 12 from Montpelier to Morrisville on Sunday. The colors were still early but widespread. I haven't been able to get out much because my 97 ...

Re: Lewis Pond Overlook Directions by Phil (pwt)

Because of personal obligations I have not been able to ride the back roads like I use to. So I haven't been able to ride those roads this year. In the 20 years I've been riding those roads, I have not had any trouble driving them. These roads were railroad beds in the old days and then converted to...

Re: Fall trip. Need help to fix my routes

The only downside on your tour is the lodging in the Hardwick/Greensboro area. There isn't much in that area. Stowe, Vt will be your best bet.
Conway, NH might be a problem, also. The Fryeburg Fair will be starting and lodging might be scarce. Your tour itself looks great.

Re: Waterville/Belvidere caterpillar impacts and general routes question

The caterpillars did not hit that area very much. Just one spot on Butternut Mountain can be seen. You will find that the colors as you approach Montgomery will still be early. This is normal. The highlands in this area will have better color. Routes 58 through Hazen's Notch and 242 to Jay Peak will...

Re: So Mother Nature Has Thrown Us A Curve Ball...

I went on a ride up around the NEK early this week. Colors on Rt 100 from Hyde Park to Lowell were early but nice. The stressed out trees had bright color. I drove from Lowell to Lake Willoughby and then down to Lyndonville. Color change was just starting. I then took the South Wheelock/Stannard Mou...

Re: Suggestions for this Friday

Colors here on route 100 in Hyde Park are looking great. Should be peaking this weekend. The Northeast Kingdom should be the same.
