Re: Foliage Report for September 14th 2016

Thanks for the report Tim! The first report gets me very excited knowing we are on our way to viewing heaven on Earth! I hope I didn't make a huge mistake by booking Burlington for the first week of October. I wanted something around Stowe but anything I could afford was already taken. We don't mind...

Re: Burlington Area 1st week in beautiful October

Thank you for the wonderful suggestions for our trip to Burlington. I definitely feel the warmth coming from the lake keeps temperatures up in that area but the lake is calling my hubby. I am hoping for a few frosty nights. Bring it on, Mother Nature!

Burlington Area 1st week in beautiful October

Hi all, Even though I am sitting at my kitchen table with the windows finally open I am thinking about my trip to Burlington. Some of you know we usually make our home in Killington-Mendon for the week but after doing that area for many years it is time to explore a different part of Vermont. My hus...

What to do in Vermont when raining...

Hubby and I are on our way up to Killington tomorrow and the reports are calling for rain, rain and more rain! I am ready to cancel our trip but hubby wants to go. Besides not much color the rain will really dampen my spirits. We have been in this situation about 8 or 9 years ago and it was awful. A...

Re: Foliage Album 2014

NEK Your beautiful photos are mesmerizing to say the least. God has blessed you with the eye of an artist. I especially love the photos of the leaves which always bring back childhood memories for me. I am hoping this autumn will be as breath-taking as 2014 but if not, I'll still be in my beloved Ve...

Re: Today in VT Part II: Route 9 from West to East: Emerging Color in the Highlands!

I am happy to read your post about the beginning of the leaves changing. As you know, here in CT we are suffering from a drought. I haven't been following Vermont's weather but hope we all will be able to enjoy a long, beautiful autumn. IMHO, I can't imagine anything surpassing 2014. We have been co...

One, if not the best, Foliage Seasons!

Hi All, The beauty of our favorite, fleeting season has left me breathless. The colors fill my heart with joy and wonderment but at the same time sadness as I believe this year was one for the books and who knows when we will have a perfect season like this again. We had perfect conditions leading i...

Re: STOWE REPORT--GONDOLA--TOLL ROAD--SMUGGLERS NOTCH

We returned from Stowe Tuesday and I have never experienced more vibrant reds and oranges! The foliage this season is breath-taking to say the least. I only wished we could have stayed a bit longer. Rte 108 is the road! Loved the Stowe area after years of being in Killington. Everywhere we went it j...
