I delay to visit Vermont on this Monday. I worry I have missed foliage peak. Please suggest best places to visit.
One picture i took on 27th, Oct, last year. I attached it here.

Your best bests are going to be the lower elevation areas in Vermont below about 1,500', above that the foliage will most likely be bare or past peak. A rather strong cold front in due to past through New England overnight with rain showers and winds from 25-40mph, which will strip away quite a lot of foliage. I have not been further north than Killington this year, but from what I saw I would recommend Route 100 from Warren down to Ludlow. Southern Vermont beyond that point has dull color or trees going bare. You might also want to try Route 7 from Rutland to Burlington, or south a bit, not sure what you will find. Route 5 may be another option, lets say from Bellows Falls and north from there. The 1-91 corridor from Brattleboro to exit 6 was dull in color as of last Tuesday.
Hope this helps.

My B&B was in Bellow Falls this weekend. Don't waste time going there. No colors

Colors in my neck of the woods really started overnight last night. I remarked that it actually looks like fall this morning!
If you are coming over the next 7 days or so try valley areas...My area should be good. South of Burlington and west of Route 116 to Lake Champlain. Silver Street-Monkton/Bristol Road between Hinesburg & Bristol had some good colors showing this morning. I'd say we are about 50% along.
