Abby (aka Carol)- Thank you for your response. Yes, we will be going to Lake Willoughby. I showed my DH your photos and he was amazed. He has always wanted to see a moose. It is kind of an inside joke between us whenever we go up to VT. Your pictures are just great you must be a professional. If not...

Abby- I can only echo ctyanky: WOW and DOUBLE WOW! Your pictures are breathtaking. Nothing moves me like my beloved VT. I can't wait to get up there on Wednesday. Do you think the ride up to Lake Willoughby will still be worth it (foliage speaking of course) as we will be based out of White River Ju...

So Far How Does This Foliage Season Measure Up?

Hi All- Here goes the $64K question I think you all want to ask, how does this foliage season measure up to say, 2003? Believe me, I for one am grateful for any and all foliage and find beauty in the smallest patch of color, but I was just wondering. Most of our old timers have seen many autumns com...

ctyanky- I am in the same boat regarding maps and posts from this forum. I am going to bring my laptop tote minus my laptop and have all my precious posts in there where I will have convenient access to them. I can't wait for Wednesday. I don't know how to pack as I am sure it will be cooler up ther...

Me too- I might just hit it perfectly this year!!! As I have said before we always made our annual pilgrimage beginning the Wednesday after Columbus Day until that Sunday and always seemed a bit too late for the brilliant reds. This year we decided to come up 1 week earlier and it is looking good. I...

Thanks Andy- I have always wanted to go there. She is on my "to see" list. Any more tidbits? How is WRJ? I believe I was thinking St Johnsbury when I made the reservation. Oh, well. Would you believe I am sitting here sweating. :x Tomorrow is suppose to break records with the temperature. Might hit ...

ctyanky- You must go to the Rochester Cafe and Country Store. Their Corn Chowder is to die for. The owner/chef knows his way around soups and sandwiches. I usually call up before we leave CT and inquire as to when he might have Corn Chowder on his menu! Nice, homey place with neat booths and an old ...
