SO Vermont Foliage Update 9/16, Chester, Peru, Manchester, Dorset, route 131, 11, 30, 7A S, 9 East

Wow! What a fantastic day in Southern VT today (long ride home). We started out from northern CT at 8 a.m. (I'm hard to get moving any earlier :roll: ) and got to Chester for the fall foliage festival just after 10. It was really packed with more booths this year, but it was HOT. We didn't stay too ...

Re: Foliage forecast update

Hey Loafer! Wow, it was really hot in So. Vermont today. Mostly in the low to mid 80s depending on the elevation. So warm, that at the Bromley summit everyone was in shorts and t shirts! No breeze either. When we got to the Dorset quarry, it was packed with swimmers and sunbathers and it was hotter ...

Re: It's 2018 and time to kickstart your Vermont fall foliage plans!

Hello forum friends! We are now one week away from the autumnal equinox and I couldn't be happier! It could be a tad cooler but good things are worth waiting for! Hopefully by now, you have your lodging plans in place. Time to plan your routes and activities during your foliage vacation! There is so...

Re: Foliage forecast update

Hi Janice! I always follow this link. It comes on every week with a new update and it is pretty much spot on with little embellishment of the actual foliage situation. I'm off to Vermont tomorrow for the day as I couldn't wait another 10 days to get my "Vermont Shot In the Arm". Pretty muc...

Re: Texas Aggie - Cloudland Road and loop, Pomfret

Hi Texas! Quechee Gorge is a real sight and you can hike down the trail as well. You are going to enjoy Cloudland Road. If it is something on your Vermont Wish List , then you should definitely go for it! I've been several times and loved it. I really hope you can do the loop. If you check google ma...

Texas Aggie - Cloudland Road and loop, Pomfret

Texas Aggie: I pulled your question on Cloudland Road out of another post so you don't get lost in the black hole of the forum post! I have a great loop for you that Minnesotaman told me about and it is a fun and scenic drive. When you are at the top of Cloudland, turn right on Galaxy Hill Road and ...

Re: Fall trip Planning and best bets

Texas aggie: Responding to your comment on the cost of the trip up to Mt. Equinox: I suppose it is quite expensive. I've done it three times only with a driver and passenger so the cost was indeed $25. My personal thought on this goes like this. When I get to the summit and feel like I am on top of ...

Re: Fall trip Planning and best bets

bid: Loved your photos as well and the one Carol mentioned caught my eye first off! As far as route 100, my favorite part of this scenic (and iconic) road is from Warren to Hancock (north to south). It is beautiful! The Granville Gulf (which is about in the middle I think) is the most enchanting par...

Re: Great Restaurant Comes to Central VT Waitsfield!

I found the orchard! It is Boyers. A great place! I'm craving a good cider donut (or two) with a strong cup of coffee right now!

Re: Great Restaurant Comes to Central VT Waitsfield!

hi bm: then Bristol Cliffs it is. Can't wait to go there. Can you remind me of the cider donut/orchard near you where we stopped a few years ago? I want to take him there before we head to Burlington. It starts with a B? It is near where you live if I remember correctly. Those were probably some of ...

Hi Texas: I'm sure you are in your final countdown, days now! Our trees here in northern CT are turning now as you round the bend at every corner. Lots of rain yesterday helped the dryness a bit but a long stretch of sunny, warm days are ahead for the next week. Mums are everywhere and fall décor is...

It is the Vermont Institute of Natural Science (VINS). bm and I went there and there were lots of kids aro...
