What is the forecast for fall color in the Northeast Kingdom for October 8-11?

Probably a little on the later side. Historically, the NEK peaks right about now.
Ixl, a regular poster here, is up there right now. I'm sure he'll post back.
EDIT: in addition to the first hand reports posted here by those of us from up in this neck of the woods, the State tourism folks keep close track of foliage and post reports from State foresters on their website. It's updated every couple days or so (last updated today).

The Kingdom will be way past peak by then. I was up there this last weekend and it is peak right now above Burke and Craftsbury. The area I would wander around at that time would be southeastern Vermont from about route 131 and south. You have some great villages like Grafton, Saxton's River, Townshend, Newfane and Chester. You have some covered bridges including the longest one in the USA in Windsor. Because the colors will be down there so will the foloiagefolks, so rooms may be hard to find.
