I am going to be in Vermont October 1st through Columbus Day Weekend. My first weekend will be at a B&B in Woodstock. I have hopes to finally visit the Raptor Center, Billings Farm and many back roads around the area. I have the Worthy Kitchen on my list of eateries as I heard it is great! Then I am going to be at Carol's (abby on the forum) house in Barton for the first week in October. The adventures of Thelma and Louise Part III is forthcoming! Columbus Day Weekend, I will be at another B&B in Castleton hoping to spend those days with bm, our other forum moderator. I'm exploring new areas this season for a change and am excited to tool around new back roads and places to visit that I have not been before.
Hope to hear if any of you are coming to Vermont, or anticipating a trip there. Summer is just around the corner and then the next season will soon be beckoning us all!
Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~George Eliot
Hope you are finalizing your trip plans at this point in time and looking forward to a great autumn in Vermont 2016!
We are planning our annual pilgrimage to Vermont (God's country) for either the last week of September or the first week of October. We have had visits where it rained 75% of the time which is no fun when you goal is sightseeing...One of the most colorful years was the last week in September 2014. I thought we hit it just right. With our drought situation, I am wondering what Mother Nature has in store for us this autumn. Any comments would be taken with a grain of salt but very appreciated!!! Also, we usually stay in Killington and do day trips from there. Any suggestions for a different area to plop down in? I wouldn't mind being closer to Polly's Pancakes even though (bite my tongue) it is in NH. Nothing makes me smile as much as a sunny autumn day having lunch at the Rochester Cafe especially if they are serving their to die for Corn Chowder soup. We are not big shoppers, so being near the outlets don't mean that much to us. I can't believe SOX closed up. Now that was my type of store.
I can't wait for the most beautiful time of the year! I am blessed to live in New England.
but I like to fret! but I'm rather optimistic right now--of course you are correct, 2nd and 3rd week of September will tell the story, and hopefully the Foliage Gods will be quite kind to us as they have been, for so many years in the pastctyanky wrote:Hi Wentworth: Vermont was actually not in much of a drought at all. They have been getting copious amounts of rain from storms all summer. Stop fretting, things are moving along beautifully. I'm hopeful for a great season. You really can't predict much until about the second week of September anyways. And as I have said before, Mother Nature holds the reins! Too many variables come into play in September to make much of a prediction at all right now but I am optimistic!
