I love it when I can say, "I'm going to Vermont next month!" :D Time seems to be flying by quickly now. Pretty soon I'll be dragging my luggage down and just after Labor Day all my fall décor starts creeping out to display on my front door and stoop (much to the dismay of my neighbors, who are still hanging on to summer!). :mrgreen:

I took my luggage down yesterday! It is part of my anticipation frenzy for the VT foliage vacation that I couldn't resist any longer :!: After Labor Day, which is fast approaching, I'll begin the staging area for accumulating my "stuff" for the trip! :mrgreen:

Yesterday I spent hiking two trails in NW CT to get in shape for my VT hiking and we saw a lot more dulling of the trees and tips of random treetops turning bright red and orange. Sensitive fern cover turned brown, indicated that temperatures had dipped into the 40's recently in the higher elevations where we hiked. Deep in the cool forest, you can actually "smell" the change....

The emerging flowers peaking out from the budding pumpkins that were recently planted in the fields were quite a sight to see! Also, a few signs along the back roads broadcasting fall festivals in Sept and Oct added to my anticipation of things to come. :D

I have my Delorme, Jimapco and Cartographic maps out and will begin to seek out new routes in the three places I have booked my inns at.

And lastly, I heard from Phil again and he is going to join the gang for our meetup either Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday of the first week in October. 8)

And time marches on.....................
