Re: Heat coming back

Great post, Carol! I look at it this way, if I am handed warmer weather, I am going to take what I am given and go with it. Hiking up the shaded side of a mountain with morning temps in the 30s means I am in for a finger numbing, cheek reddening cold climb. I will be packing on layers in the morning...

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

OK, here is a link to the most recent issue of Stratton: http://www.strattonmagazine.com/digital/current-issue/ I had to link to it because it has articles on hikes in Southern Vermont (from hardish [Bromley] to easy [West River] and in between), Skyline Drive and the history of the mountain on whic...

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

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

What kind of place are you looking for? If you are OK with a resort, Stratton still has some availability, if that would work for you, geographically? Rooms start at $135. Warning: the Columbus Day Brewfest will be going on at that time so,might be a bit of a party crowd there. http://www.stratton.c...

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

Ct, That is a fantastic list! My only adds would be: Stratton - the ski resort is set up like a Nordic town. There are some cute shops and restaurants there for your before/after the gondola. Jamaica - great coffee shop, walk along the West River in Jamaica State Park, follow the spur from the trail...

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

Janice, I full disclosure, Charles knows it far better than do I. That said, I am more than happy to help but, will defer to him if he weighs in. What are your interests? Are you looking for photographic locations or are you looking for the whole gamut? If the whole gamut, at what level of activity ...

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

CT, I hate missing out on seeing all of you too. I am hoping that next year my job will have a changed slightly and I will be less calendar dependent. That way I can match up to everyone else's travel schedules a bit better. Going early would also allow me to venture farther north than I have gotten...

Re: Congrats to our own Charles (ixl) (2) two page spreads Vermont Life Autumn 2015!!!!

Charles, that is great! I love your photos and I love that bakery! I got my friends to use them for their wedding cake and they did not disappoint (having eaten their food so many time, I had little concern that they would).

I cannot wait to stop in there and look for your photos on the wall.

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

CT, I saw that website and that is some very interesting reading. I would love to be able to spend more time in Vermont and get to volunteer with some of these groups doing such good work to preserve Vermont. I looked at some additional photos of the walkway around the store (that seems to be the be...

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

CT, Do you know if the viewing areas for Hogsback Mountain are only open when the store is open or are they accessible at all times? Also, have you, or anyone else, ever done the hike to The Great Cliff (Brandon Gap on the LT)? It looks like it might be a good vantage point for some morning photos. ...

Re: Name Your "TOP THREE"

For Photos 1) Old First Church in Bennington - it is the way I know I am "home". The burial grounds are beautiful and the building itself is New England perfection. Jaunt over to the battle monument just across the road a ways. 2) West River (from the old railroad bed to the Scott Bridge) ...

Re: Legalities

Andy, Thanks. I think Vermont is so exceptional in the locals willingness to share their land if you are respectful of their needs and courteous to them as people. My favorite fishing spot is near Arlington. The people whose land borders on the Battenkill have mowed a path to the river for easier ac...

Re: The Great Fall Get Together

All, There is a distant possibility that I can make it up for the fall get together. Could you give me the days that you are planning to get together to shoot photos (day and night, you crazies!)? Also, an idea of where you will be based for the days in question would be awesome for logistics! Still...

Re: Legalities

Andy, Thanks! On people, my understanding was that people in the background and in a public place, no need for a release but, if they are the subject of the photo (and the photo is for artistic and not journalistic purposes) you need to contact them for a release. Honestly, as a landscape guy, peopl...
