Re: HELP! We are here...color is not

Yes...you need to go to valley areas in the western part of VT. Basically draw a line between Burlington and Rutland go west of there. Route 30 between Castleton and Middlebury is a good bet. If you want to get off the main roads Moscow Road/Black Pond Road in Castleton & Hubbardton is a nice drive ...

Re: Stowe & Waitsfield 10/10

Colors are starting to get good in the Champlain Valley/Route 7 corridor. From Rochester, pop over Rochester Gap (Route 73). Take Route 53 along Lake Dunmore. Explore the back roads of Weybridge, Cornwall, Sailsbury, East Middlebury, Bristol, Starksboro, Lincoln, Hinesburg, New Haven, Ferrisburgh, M...

Ripton-Lincoln-Starksboro 9/28/18

Well....still early. Still lots of green. Up in the higher elevations of Lincoln early color is starting to come along. The western slopes of the mountains are just about mid-stage I'd say. I'd give this area another 7-10 days. Route I took was (south to north) North Branch Road to Lincoln-Ripton Ro...

Re: Traveling to Burlington the second week in October to shoot photos/drone video anyone want to shoot leaves?

Rental car is going to be your best bet. Uber is available in Burlington but you may not be able to find a ride far out of town. I bet you could get an Uber to Mt. Philo State Park though. If you went there closer to end of your trip you may find some good color. For the beginning part of your trip ...

Re: Great Restaurant Comes to Central VT Waitsfield!

It is no longer the Bristol Bakery & Cafe. They sold the Bristol location and now their only location is in Hinesburg. The cafe is now called the Bristol Cliffs Cafe.

Re: New England trip for my friends with a toddler

Missed the small town part. Shelburne or Middlebury. In Middlebury, the child may like seeing the horses at the Morgan Horse Farm. Good toddler friendly hiking up in Ripton at the Robert Frost Trail. Also the Lake Pleiad trial.
