As a back story, I must tell you I am in deep in the Lincoln woods on a dirt road near Jerusalem in the most beautiful B&B I've ever been in, isolated and on a dead end. I was getting ready at 6:15 and around 6:30, I thought to myself, I should at least look out the window. Each year, I hope to have a Vermont moment that will stay in my mind forever. And so it came when I least expected it.....
My bedroom windows look out onto the mountains over Lincoln and beyond! It is truly a magnificent view to wake up to! Out my window I see the sunrise with a layer upon layer of pink clouds rising in the distance with fog in the valleys and a view all the way to Camel's Hump. I ran downstairs still in PJS (not even realizing it was 30 degrees) and stood in awe of the sight before me. I stood there in disbelief, it was magical, so much so, that I had tears of joy in my eyes. Chrystal clear views and a mist rising above their pond below, rising like small diamonds. How blessed I felt to have had this experience during my Vermont foliage vacation, to make this one my "Vermont moment".
Foliage heaven at my doorstep. A scene to be cherished forever. CT
Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~George Eliot

A place, experience or photographic omg moment that happened during your 2018 foliage vacation? I have a memory from almost every season that brings joy to me when I think back upon it. CT
I opened the curtains of our motel room in Bennington at 6:50 am last Sunday and saw this. As mentioned, most of this color came overnight, and wasn't there the previous day.
I am back in Philly now but can’t wait to be back in New England for more fall colors in the next years
