I want to take this moment to thank all of the members of this forum for the many wonderful suggestions of places to visit. You've all helped make this trip a success for me. I want to offer special thanks to Andy for suggesting that I post on this forum in the first place (and for his invaluable Vermont ebook) and to Carol for her many outstanding recommendations of places to go and for guiding me around to some hot spots one afternoon.
In time, I'll be relating my experiences in chronological installments on my blog and, eventually, will add all of the worthy images to new galleries on my website.
I only have a couple of opportunities a year to head out on extended photo journeys; New England in the fall has been on my to-do list for years. Thanks to everyone on the forum for being such a significant part of making this experience a good one.
