Hi Loafer: I think Phil reiterated your sentiments exactly today on the way up to Lewis Pond and a different route coming back. The strange thing is that so many trees were still full but yes, looked frazzled or "cooked" as you have stated. We saw a lot of areas that looked like they had "potential" but Phil thought it was too late. I try to remain optimistic.

Will be doing Connecticut and the Berkshires the remaining weekends in October and perhaps down to the CT shoreline early November unless rain and wind dictate otherwise.

I'll be in Middlebury starting Friday for four days, not sure what that side of the state will have to offer, but I was wondering if anyone has been on the Lincoln back roads????

Discouraging reports for sure. Drove into Albany, NY tonight, some areas of the Empire State still very green, but look promising. Will drive up through Vermont tomorrow on our way to Littleton NH, will let you know what we find. Sure hope the best foliage we see on this trip doesn't end up being in the state of OHIO!!!!! :shock:

Hi Janice! Have a super time with your family! You must be very happy to finally see them. Sorry about the foliage here, it is so opposite of last season, it's hard to fathom. But trees are resilient and next year will be another autumn to look forward to. I had so many outdoor activities on the schedule this year, more than ever really, that I am actually having the time of my life up here. The weather has been outstanding for outdoor enthusiasts. Every day when I get home, I sit out on the inn deck and soak in the sun, knowing winter is not far behind. This is better than rain for sure and I would not have been able to do all my fun events. For that I am grateful! There is so much to do in Vermont and having a backup plan to leaf-peeping is a life saver. All in all, I'm just happy to be up here on vacation and am enjoying each and every day immensely! Have a great trip!!!! Sorry I missed you this year, maybe 2018! :D

Hi CT! Yep, just happy to be here! We will be here till the 17th so we'll see what unfolds. My daughter and grandkids are very excited to see their husband and Dad today for the first time in a month. It's been quite the journey traveling across this beautiful country of ours with four littles. Plus getting to visit with another son and his family in Illinois. Lucky for us we get to look forward to many visits in the future! I've always wanted a vacation home in New England and now I have one! :lol:

I think we are back to hitting home runs! When I mentioned awhile ago that we were in a holding pattern with the colors, well this certainly "played out"!!!!!! 8)
