You can drive to the Dam, and just above the Dam is Little River State Park. Not sure if the park is open this time of year, but you can get access to the reservoir from inside the park. I believe they have a boat launch there. The road up to the dam is off Route 2 in Waterbury. There is also access...

Turkey Hill - Northfield, VT

If any of you are still out looking for color in the next couple of days, I can recommend Turkey Hill Road in Northfield, VT. I was up there this morning a bit after sunrise, and there is still some nice color up there. The nice thing about Turkey Hill, is the best light doesn't hit until about 45 m...

The Randall Linebacks are beautiful cows. I was admiring some on some back road Saturday. Aspen: I believe the "Texas Long Horns" you saw were actually Scottish Highlanders. Many people are rasing them in Vermont now because they are a very hardy breed. I actually helped a farmer chase two young one...

I live in Tunbridge, VT and try and get down to the fairgrounds during the summer when they have horse events, so I can photograph the ...

Unfortunately, it looks like high winds Sunday and Monday. Hopefully some of the leaves will hang on. There are always some good pockets of color to be found. I took this shot in 2008 in Reading (Caper Rd) on October 17th. I checked this same spot yesterday, and both the big maples in this shot are ...

We were in the Woodstock area today and for the most part, I thought things were a bit blah. The leaves are falling fast, and many times today we found ourselves being "rained on" by leaves. Jenne Farm looked pretty good. The big maples are orane and were still pretty full of leaves. Cloudland Road ...
