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

Howdy everyone! I’m new to the forum. Our family will be making our first trip to Vermont this fall! We have family that moved to central Vermont a couple of years ago, and we will be staying with them for Columbus Day weekend. I am an ecologist by trade, and an amateur photographer. I’m looking fo...

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

...... our main objective is to experience the autumn and, above all, to live the authentic world of villages, but above all my wife also loves lighthouses and we would like to see some of them beauty and with history. We really like the itinerary that you proposed, we will focus on spending more d...

Re: Killington today

Glad that Killington color held on for you!! Lefferts Pond is beautiful and changed very late this year. Looking forward to seeing your photos.

Re: Killington Colors

thanks Minnesota! The pond is so close to the place we rent so it's nice to capture it several times over the course of our time here. Here are a few more from this week including my first attempt at drone photography https://photos.smugmug.com/VT-2017/i-rPsbw84/0/d2a0b636/L/6Q2A3119-L.jpg https://p...

Re: The Color is here!

Color continues to impress in Killington and beyond. It's a bit difficult to post photos here so am posting most of my things on FB but the colors have truly exploded and continue to get deeper and richer every day!! Lots of awesomeness all over VT. This weekend should be beautiful even with overcas...

The Color is here!

Some color from 10/4 and 10/5! Things in the Killington region look good right now and colors exploded here overnight. Also was in Peacham last night and I think the colors there are going to be nice....was almost dark when we got there so didn't get a complete look at things, but the pond at moonli...

Killington Colors

We arrived to Killington last evening and many of the hillsides here are mostly green with some early hints of color. It seems that some trees changed a couple of weeks ago but i think there is still plenty of foliage to come. The weather right now is more "typical" - cool/cold nights and ...

Re: Saturday Sept 23 and Sunday the 24th

thanks for the great report Carol! We head up on Thursday and we're looking forward to seeing you very soon :-) Between your area and Killington we WILL find awesome color...and, as you mention, VT is beautiful regardless. I will be interested to see what colder weather does and am looking forward t...

Re: New England trip. Seeking suggestion

I think either Killington or St. Johnsbury are fine for a base. I would skip Stowe as I find it WAY to crowded in the Fall and hate sitting in traffic when there is so much of VT to see and experience. I agree with NEK - don't try to see everything... pick a spot and explore from that area. There is...

Re: New England trip. Seeking suggestion

Since this is a VT forum, most will suggest a VT destination :-) I use Killington as a home base and expect there to be good color there the weekend of September 30! The reason you don't hear much (commercially) about the North East Kingdom is because many of of the more commercial areas of VT tend ...

Re: Two questions regarding iPhone !!!

I have an iPhone and use Verizon. The network in VT is FAR better than years ago. I get a signal in most areas but there are a few places where the signal is weak and a call might drop. Does not happen a lot like it used to!! In terms of GPS coordinates, am not sure how to add those to a map in an i...

Re: Which weekend and which area to visit New England ?

Sparks - we rent a house every year we come to VT and it has worked out very well. We have also stayed in various hotels/motels for shorter trips. I don't know anything about the rental property you are asking about but all of my experiences have been positive. Good luck in making your decision!

Re: Can we get some Vermont photography going again?

Super Nice Tim!! We had some awesome Aurora here last week that I was able to capture. Started out with HUGE and BRIGHT color that lasted for about 20 minutes and then settled down quite a bit. It was an amazing site- all of the photographers were cheering and yelling!! Would LOVE to see it in VT wh...

Re: Which weekend and which area to visit New England ?

OK Sparks.... so, from Groton Forest area there are a number of ways to get to Killington area. I will share a route that is part highway/part smaller roads. I tried to highlight key words that you can look up to learn more about some of these places. See what you think about these routes - I can sh...
