Re: Foliage is getting started early this year

Hi Loafer I just watched a youtube video series of an Appalachian Trail hiker who was in Rangeley a few days ago (perhaps 09-28?). The colors on the trail are starting to look really nice, but there seems the peak has not arrived. If you're interested, here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

Re: Foliage is getting started early this year

Hi. I saw you mentioned Newport, VT. As I was re-reading the Autumn, 1984 edition of Vermont Life, I came across an article that mentions "Lake Memphremagog". It is an excellent article with pictures that discusses research and traveling on/around an old stagecoach road that ran from Montpelier to D...

Re: A Glorious Fall Preview in New England this Labor Day Weekend!

Hi CT.
Yes, I'd heard that Jeanette had passed some years ago, and the store was currently not open.
Sad to see that family not involved with that store.

Hex - Were you familiar with this store?

God Bless...

Re: A Glorious Fall Preview in New England this Labor Day Weekend!

Hi Hex. I found the Vermont Life edition that had the article about Averill. It is Autumn, 1978. I've always enjoyed reading this each year when I re-read the Autumn editions and enjoy the Fall pictures. It is about the Lake View Store, as run by Jeanette Roy and her husband Victor. It appears they ...

Re: A Glorious Fall Preview in New England this Labor Day Weekend!

Hi CT.

RE: NW Connecticut.
I was stationed at the sub base in sw CT in the early 70's.
I hiked most of the blue trails in that area.
I twice went up to NW CT in the Salisbury area and hiked to the top of Bear Mountain.
A very scenic place.
Glad to hear some color is showing up there.
God Bless...

Re: A Glorious Fall Preview in New England this Labor Day Weekend!

Hi Hex. Enjoyed your report from the Averill area. If you read my post on "Fall Foliage and Vermont Life", I mention I'm reading my old Autumn editions of the magazine. I do this each year at this time. In one of them, there's an article about a woman who ran a general store in Averill. When I get t...

Re: Fall Foliage and Vermont Life Magazine - Now Gone

Hi CT. I appreciate your comments. RE: Magazine No Longer Published Yes - I read that it had been experiencing a financial loss for several years, and the state legislature stopped funding it (even though they had sold advertising!). I'm just glad that someone archived the magazines (with a few miss...
