This could be one of the best foliage seasons ever this year. Most area north (and higher in elevation) of here is peak and the forecast for the next week has virtually no wind and no heavy rain. In other words, nothing that is going to knock the leaves off very fast. By Wednesday, it will look like a color bomb went off around here.

I was going to take Wednesday off but due to work it has changed to Thursday. If you and Carol are back from central VT on Thursday let me know. I will be around.
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
Anyways, I wanted to tell you I decided to go back to the NEK! And we went to Wheeler Pond and indeed, it was spectacular! My friend and I liked it so much he even took a card from the realtor about the land available for purchase, 100 acres, the pond and a cabin! It was a perfect time to go and we headed up Wheeler Mtn. Rd a bit but turned around due to time constraints. Soooooooooooo glad we went! Stopped at Bean Pond too. That was super nice and at peak and so was Wheeler. Amazing!
However, even if you still plan on driving around here, all is not lost! There are pockets of color and great individual tree that make great viewing and subjects for photography.
These are from this morning (I had 26 degrees on my house thermometer this morning):

this seems to be the season that keeps on giving What a great foliage season VT is having and it appears that it has been/is good in so many different areas of the state!
Sorry we didn't get a chance to meet up this year- i appreciate your photos and updates!
Our show is just beginning down here in CT and I'm out now on the weekends in the NW and NE corners! Still mid stage here in the NW hills so this weekend should be perfect! I was surprised how late it was in North Canaan and Norfolk when I was there Sunday. Just over a week behind.
Come on down!

The strong winds today have stripped most leaves that were still on (save for some sparse oaks, cottonwoods, and poplar). The next few days we have the Tamaracks and then it will be finished until next year.
It was such a fun season and it was great to finally meet some SOV members.
See you in Sept/Oct 2017! Staying at Seyon Lodge a couple of days, never to early to start planning!
