I had a major wake up call in life when I was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer in May of this year. I had my prostate removed just 7 weeks ago and made a promise to myself that I would start working on my bucket list if all went well, fall in New England being the top item!! My surgery was successful and as of right now, the prognosis is very good, with no signs of it having spread.
I made my reservations late but successfully. I will be in Pike, NH from 10/7 thru 10/9, Montpelier, Vermont from 10/9 thru 10/13 and in Portland, ME from 10/13 thru 10/20. I am also a landscape photographer and my goal, while in Vermont, is to find quaint backroad drives, with a yearning to shoot old barns/pastures and any other "off the beaten path" places. I realize I may be too late to find prime foliage in the highlands so I may concentrate on the valley area if need be.
I'd LOVE any information other members would have about these goals. Most of the posts I have been reading are now concentrated on the upper reaches of the state for peak color. Am I going to be too late for even the lower elevations?
Thank you all in advance.
I don't have a backroad atlas but I'll see if I can find either of those two on Amazon tonight and have it for reading on the plane. CANNOT wait to arrive and see your beautiful part of the world!! Like I said, it's been a bucket list item for a LONG time. Not sure why I waited so long but it's funny how a life scare can wake up a soul!!
Thank you very much, Carol!!abby wrote:Hi Carl and welcome to the forum! BM gave you some great suggestions. Also, you may want to get our own Andy's e-book which contains numerous places to photograph in VT. It's a treasure trove for sure!!!
Keep an eye on the forum as time draws near to see how the foliage is progressing. I'm excited for you. Enjoy your time!!!
I do want to congratulate you on your successful surgery. My dad had that done when he was 70 and recovered wonderfully. I am sure you see all the world with a new appreciation. Enjoy your trip and perhaps many more!
I too have at least partially relocated to FL. Where are you there. Are you able to escape the Hurricane?
If it sounds too good to be true, its probably . . . .
