Re: To Anyone Already in NEK 10/1 - Current Conditions?

I was at Noyes Pond on Friday. The color was not great, a combination of green, yellows, a few brick reds, and sticks. Often by this time there is red on the right hand side as you look across the pond from the boat area. At present it looked to be green and gray, some yellow, and only a little bit ...

Re: Killington Colors

The second image (and perhaps others) look like Kent Pond. Is it? You have posted many beautiful images of Kent Pond on this site over the years, you are the undisputed master of that place.

Re: So Mother Nature Has Thrown Us A Curve Ball...

Today I repeated the route I took a week ago, from Woodstock up to Wells River, to Lincoln NH, out the Kanc, around Bear Notch through Crawford Notch and Franconia Notch, west into Vermont and then south through Vermont, generally within 10 miles of 91, back to Woodstock. There was not much change f...

Re: Foliage Report Friday Sept 22

From the NEK regularly catches really big fish. so i am going to follow his plan and take another look on tuesday or wednesday. ...

Re: So Mother Nature Has Thrown Us A Curve Ball...

I made a long loop today, from Woodstock, to St Johnsbury, to Lake Willoughby, to Island Pond, to Norton, to Canaan, down to Colebrook NH, to Franconia, to Beaver Pond on 112, and back down, with many detours along the way to check out a number of my customary autumn "shrines." It was 70 d...

Re: Woodstock Area Oct 1 & 2 2016

Conditions have held up remarkably well in Woodstock/Pomfret/Bridgewater. In fact, upper Cloudland Road and Galaxy Hill were at peak today, and look like they will hold on for a bit. The colors were as good as I have seen on these roads since 2001. Leffert's Pond Chittenden area was very good today,...

Re: Townshend, Belmont, Grafton, Newfane, etc

I was on the road to somerset up from 9, and it was stripped, so I decided that the Kelly Stand Road was probably not going to be worth the time since it usually goes pretty early. If you hear that it is still any good let me know, I might go back down there in that case.

Re: Townshend, Belmont, Grafton, Newfane, etc

looked like milfoil to me.

i did ride the length of 9 today. a lot of leaf drop after yesterday's weather, esp in the higher elevations.

but 7 and 7A from bennington up to rutland were good, relatively little leaf drop and a fair amount of red.

I still cant recall how to post a crisp image here, but perhaps this will give you an idea how Star Lake looks.

Townshend, Belmont, Grafton, Newfane, etc

I headed south from my Woodstock headquarters this morning. Jenne Farm is about at peak. Leaves are fragile here, the rain today I am sure took its toll. The Andover East Hill area is good, a bit past peak. Some red still hanging on, but not a lot. Townshend: the Scott covered bridge is being rebuil...

Re: Woodstock Area Oct 1 & 2 2016

markm also try webster hill road, off pomfret road. there is a good view to the south. it is in the general direction toward the maple grove farm. i was there early this morning. it was too cloudy and dark to get a sense for the color, but it usually comes in late there, so it should still be ok.

Re: Woodstock Area Oct 1 & 2 2016

A few observations for those who are still here: Woodstock/Pomfret is a mixed bag. Some areas are still ripening (upper Cloudland), some are nearly leafless (lower Cloudland and parts of River Road along the Ottaquechee). Joe Ranger and Galaxy Hill are good, but mostly orange. The last few years upp...
