Re: Hey Vermont foliage...time to up your game!!

Yeah, Vermont will be just fine :D the Adirondacks have A LOT of trees. However there isn't a lot of anything else. Something that makes Vermont special is the mix of agricultural lands (open land), mountains, and forest. This makes for a lot of interesting views. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1967...

Re: The Queen of Rt. 100

Beautiful shot Ed.
I've driven by those falls so many times but never stopped for a photo. One of these days I won't be in such a rush :)

Re: NEK Report 10/8

Today (10/8) was very overcast and foggy in the NEK. Color around Saint Johnsbury is peak to slightly past peak. With the wind and rain today, the foliage for Saint J and north is probably done for. There were many trees with bare limbs and lots of leaf drop. I disagree to some extent. There are st...

Re: Driving from Boston to Stowe Tomorrow

Everything north and east of Saint Johnsbury is past peak. I disagree to some extent. There are still A LOT of leaves on the trees. Yes, the top canopy have blown off on the higher mountainsides. Which make the grand long range views a bit less filled in. However, many field side maples and "f...

Re: NEK Report 10/3

Yesterday from the Burke/Kirby area. Some real firecracker trees out there. As mentioned by others, Rt 114 north of Lyndonville is really coming in. There is still some green. This weekend should be excellent. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1942/44382036914_6698a29ed4_c.jpg Colorful Hillside-4013 by...

Re: October 1st Update

It was running behind but a few cold nights and the leaves changed almost overnight. There is still a lot of green out there so it should be good through this weekend and through most of next week barring strong winds or driving rain. This afternoon on Old Coach Rd in Lyndon (in the steady rain): ht...

Re: October 1st Update

The highlands in much of the NEK are starting to peak. Here are some photos from Sunday afternoon between West Danville and Cabot Plains: https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1978/45009751172_3f8315ee17_c.jpg https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1932/45057761781_96cccc7f57_c.jpg https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1...

Re: Just Arrived in Bennington. Where should we head for Foilage thru Thurs?

Unfortunately, the color is really going to need about week to really come out in most places. It is getting a little better every day here in the NEK, but I don't think it will be peak in most places this weekend.

Re: Northeast Kingdom Destinations

The foliage is running a little bit behind right now but not too far. The incoming cool weather should really kick it into gear this coming week. Higher elevations right now are where most of the color is. Unfortunately, in the immediate St Johnsbury/Lyndon valley areas I have seen some of this agai...

Re: Upstate NY to Franconia NH with stop in vt

One more thing Pats Fan.......as far as directions from East Burke to Franconia.....I highly suggest you take the following drive. When possible, I always recommend avoiding the highways, as I personally would rather follow the side roads and take in the scenery and be able to stop and pull over fo...

Re: CT to Quebec with a stop in VT- Best foliage route?

It looks like you are heading to Quebec City. I'm assuming you are driving I-91 to Canada. That goes through Northeast VT which should have great foliage at that time. But lodging is scarce up there, and with foliage season in full mode, it could be hard to find a room. St. Johnsbury and Newport ar...

Re: Fall trip Planning and best bets

Great photos in 500px Bid! I just followed you on there.
I've been having a lot of luck with Peacham for the first weekend of October as well. It is a great morning and late afternoon spot. Lots of barns and rolling hills covered in maples.

Re: Can we get some Vermont photography going again?

Here in northern Vermont, we have finally broken out of the deep freeze. Daytime highs that don't get above 0 degrees makes getting motivated to get out and take photos difficult. :D Here are a few from the last couple of months - https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4756/25745593008_c63a5826d9_c.jpg Fost...

Re: Off Topic- Storm

A lot of downed trees here in the NEK, mostly softwoods and poplar from what I've seen. I was lucky that the power was out in my neighborhood for less than 12 hrs. Some areas were out for 5-6 days.
