Re: Woodstock/Pomfret

KC, I had no idea you had a house here! Was this a recent purchase? For some reason, I thought you lived in Florida. At least you may have some sunshine and blue skies! Anyways, enjoy your time here even though the basement is occupying your time. CT No, I'm flying from Florida to Bradley airport, ...

Re: Woodstock/Pomfret

I arrive Wed afternoon, driving up from Hartford. I had just about decided to skip Jenne Farm, Cloudland Rd, Allen Hill as being too early. I intended to try Strafford, Tunbridge, Chelsea on the way to my house in Barnet. Now I'm not so sure. I'm only in Vermont for a few days, and unfortunately mai...

Re: NEK Report 10/3

Heading out in tomorrow's rain to go west on RT. 2 towards Marshfield, will report tomorrow on that area. The NEK looks just great right now, should hold for awhile if tomorrows rain and wind is not too bad. If you're going thru Marshfield, the falls on Lower Depot Rd should be great with all the r...

Re: NEK and Moose Alley NH

Mohawk Trail should be a great route that time of year. Spend an hour or so at Bridge of Flowers in Shelbourne Falls. The blooms are really a sight in Spring and Summer, but still well worth the time for a quick stop on that route.

Re: Epic Peacham church scene, farm is for sale.

Hi KC: nice to see you back here! What an idyllic spot for a new buyer. I agree, I hope they don't make any unnecessary changes! Are you returning to Vermont for foliage season this year? CT I bought a small place a few miles East of here. It needed a lot of work, so I used up nearly all my vacatio...

Epic Peacham church scene, farm is for sale.

Just noticed the farm in the Peacham church scene is for sale. Hope the new owners don't make any drastic changes.

kcflanders photos from my trip 2016

Hi Guys, Just wanted to leave a link to some photos from my trip this year. I haven't had a chance to add any descriptions, but I'm sure a lot of them will be recognizable. I spent about half my trip in Vermont and the rest in New Hampshire, a day in Massachusetts and Connecticut, and a day in New Y...

Re: Photos from my trip

I did the hike to Nichol's Ledge again yesterday. Color is great right now. The lakes and valleys were filled with fog until about 8:00AM. It's fun to watch as the fog dissipates from each lake, revealing more of the view.

Re: Foliage Update

A few more thoughts on water levels, based on my experiences today. I spent the first 2/3 of the day way up north, in the Kennebec Valley of Maine. All the rivers and brooks (etc.) that I saw up there seemed to be in good shape. The back end of the day was spent in Evans Notch--much farther south (...

Re: Foliage Update

Kerry,
If you get a chance, can you comment on the river and waterfall levels? With the drought I imagine they are pretty low. Every time I check the USGS river level maps, They are mostly showing 10-25%.

Re: Nichols Ledge

I've only been there once. Last year the color was so late I had to leave before it really turned nice. I'm going to try again this year, probably on the 8th; but that may change. From the posts I've seen so far it sounds like peak won't be running as late as last year. I sure hope not. I posted som...

Re: Photos from my trip

Yes, I'll be in New England from 10/02 - 10/12. I'll probably be in New Hampshire early and Vermont the last week. I definitely want to do Nichol's Ledge again. Early morning is perfect, before the wind picks up and ruins the reflections. This spot is fairly easy to get to. Only about a 15 minute hi...

Re: Lewis Pond Overlook Access

I don't believe you can access it from Lewis Pond Rd. I'm pretty sure the road is (or at least was) blocked before the Nulhegan River. You might have to take Henshaw Rd to Four Mile Rd. I would certainly attempt Lewis Pond Rd first, but have another plan just in case.

Re: Photos from my trip

I intended to try Nichols Ledge again this year. But the color was so late, I had to leave before it really got going. I was hoping to take some time lapse as the fog cleared and revealed the ponds. I did the short hike up to Owl's Head which was also very green. That day it really rained, I stopped...
