Re: Dorset: Dorset Quarry, Dorset Hollow and Hollow Loop

Hi Bob! Sorry, just saw your response! Hope you got up here, the water looked soooo cold in the quarry! The loop should be prime viewing right now. Love that town! 8)

Mother Nature Has Turned On the Switch to Color Mode! Go here!

Ok, something special must have occurred last night, maybe a stern conversation between Mother Nature and the Foliage Gods :!: On my way to the Peacham Fall Festival, Route 2 east from Onion Mountain Campground in Plainfield, all through Marshfield, past the 215 and 232 cutoffs and on to Mack Mounta...

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

Hi Janice! Have a super time with your family! You must be very happy to finally see them. Sorry about the foliage here, it is so opposite of last season, it's hard to fathom. But trees are resilient and next year will be another autumn to look forward to. I had so many outdoor activities on the sch...

Stowe Today

I love Stowe! I got there early enough before the crowds to attempt my shopping for gifts for friends and family. My goal was to get up on Trapp Hill to take more photos of the Scottish Highlands but they were totally absent. Last year the herd was about 75 strong and I got some fantastic shots of t...

Re: Full Harvest Moon 2017- Will you be in VT to watch it rise over the mountains?

Oh my goodness! The full harvest moon rising over Common Road was AMAZING tonight! A gorgeous evening in Vermont paired with the full harvest moon. Now how's that for perfection? 8) Sitting on the rocking chairs with a slight breeze curling around the inn and crickets in the background. I'll save th...

Re: CTYankee and pwt54 at Lewis Pond

Yes! I love the Lewis Pond Overlook! It never disappoints!!! The ride in is so relaxing and peaceful (it is about an hour in). Next year I am going to explore the Wenlock Wildlife Preserve further in and try the South America Pond Road! Phil, thank you so much for a truly, wonderful day! Your expert...

It is located on route 105 before Phil and I headed to Lewis Pond and Lewis Pond Overlook. There were so many informative brochures and user friendl...

Re: Lyndonville area 10/3

Hi Tim: this reflects our views today up through your area to Island Pond and beyond on the way to the Lewis Pond Overlook. We did stop at Miss Lyndonville's Diner at the end of the day for a tasty dinner. Hardly anyone there and the service was so fast. Thanks for the honest description of what the...

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

Hi Loafer: I think Phil reiterated your sentiments exactly today on the way up to Lewis Pond and a different route coming back. The strange thing is that so many trees were still full but yes, looked frazzled or "cooked" as you have stated. We saw a lot of areas that looked like they had &...

Re: Mad River Glen's Scenic Foliage Single Chair Lift Rides

Hello! Today I headed straight for Mad River Glen upon my arrival in Waitsfield. Had a super relaxing ride up the mountain on this spectacular autumn day in Vermont. I closed my eyes most of the way up and let that strong sunshine cover me from head to toe. After driving a couple of hours, this ride...

ROUTE 100: Londonderry to Waitsfield

I finally arrived in Waitsfield today around 1:30 after a two hour drive up from Londonderry. It was a lovely, relaxing trip with hardly any traffic either way. Except for a two load logging truck and one tractor carrying hay bales , I felt like I had the road entirely to myself. Had the music on an...
