Have You Started Thinking About or Planning Your 2017 VT Foliage Trip?
After last autumn's sensational foliage display, it is hard to imagine not returning again in 2017! One can only hope for a rerun of 2016, one of the most amazing foliage seasons in many years.
Upon trolling many B&Bs, inns and such, I'm finding they are receiving a lot of inquiries, not to mention actual confirmations of reservations.
As for myself, I am leaving the end of September again and staying for what I hope is a glorious 12 day excursion within three locales. I am exploring two towns that I've happened to pass through either for a festival, shopping or other event, or merely just traveling through to get to another destination, but never spent enough time there to fully appreciate the many things the town had to offer. So I'm just going to plop myself down at a quaint B&B and inn in these two new VT towns at the beginning and end of my trip! The middle of the stay will be in Waitsfield, my tried and true happy place. More to come as to where these "new" locales will be and what I am planning to do to occupy my time there.
There are so many items on my bucket list this coming season and I'm getting excited for autumn in Vermont once again. I have only one mountain foliage lift ride to cross off my list of eight and that is in Stratton. I never got to hike Nichols Ledge or take the cruise on Lake Champlain. One of my to do's include a long trail ride in Danby at a ranch recommended by friends. I also want to hike to Equinox Pond as I recently saw some beautiful photos online. So much to do and so little time! I wouldn't mind another day trip to Lewis Pond, will have to contact Phil who is on the beach in Florida with his endless search of seashells to bring home.
Most of all, looking to meet up once again with old and new VT foliage fanatics, locals and visitors alike, to troll around the countryside.
How about you?
