Re: Growth as a Photographer

Thanks for the kind words Andy! One of the very best things about this forum (for me) has been the opportunity to get to know and spend time with several people, including you! Al was so generous in introducing me to Milky Way photography - my first shot was from the deck of the house we rent in Kil...

Re: Jobs Pond - My Favorite NEK Foliage Location

I agree with you Ed. I'm glad that the e-book helped you to find this gem of a place. It's also a favorite of mine and never disappoints. Also, beautiful photos posted here by both you and NEK. I loved seeing them! I discovered a different vantage point a few years ago. As you are standing along th...

Re: Cool September This Year Could Mean Earlier Fall

Looks like they're amending the original lower temps forecast to a higher bias--So, probably still a later Fall than 2008 thru 2014 period, when NEK was at peak Oct 23rd or so, and more along the later Falls lines of 2016 thru 2018, but still earlier than last year's late Fall yikes Wentworth, I th...

Re: Route 114

On our last trip, Route 114 was amazing!! One of my best pics was taken on the right side of the road heading north with a horse and big rustic barn on the hillside. I'm wanting to take that route again but not wanting to go all the way to Island Pond. What would be my best bet to get from Route 11...

Re: Eight Years Ago This Week: Hurrican Irene Devastates VT and New England

The destruction left by Irene in VT was incredible - large sections of majors roads in southern/central VT simply washed away, bridges were torn apart, homes were lost, part of a cemetery washed away, fields were flooded and lots of other horrible damage. Ten plus communities became "islands" - unab...

Re: Fall foliage on Sep 20th weekend

This is super helpful, thank you. I am leaning towards booking my hotels closer to my travel date - hopefully by then we will have some idea if there will be good color or not in the Stowe, Green mountain area. Also, just so i understand - when we say there will not be much color are we referring t...

Re: Fall foliage on Sep 20th weekend

Hello everyone, I am very interested in viewing the fall foliage in New England during my trip to New York city in mid-Sep. My wife and I will have the 3 days (9/20 - 9/22) to travel somewhere to view the fall colors. From my initial research I am likely a couple of weeks early and so will have lim...

Re: Foliage From Above-Tram, Gondola, Chair Lifts! UPDATED 2019!!!

So glad to get all this info! We are for sure doing Killington for the first time. In the past my husband and I have done Stowe gondola. I'm sure it's not as long as some of the others but in 2016 we hit Stowe when it was peak and it was amazing!! the Killington gondola is a nice ride and the resor...

Re: Advice to first-time VT visitor - 1 week itinerary?

I will add to NEK's comment/suggestion. While Woodstock is a lovely town, it IS very crowded during "peeper" season and tends to attract a lot of tourists, tour buses, etc. I love visiting the town in the "off season" but really dislike it during peak foliage as the shops are crowded, parking is a h...
