Traveling to Burlington the second week in October to shoot photos/drone video anyone want to shoot leaves?

Postby ChrisSmit6 » Sat Sep 15, 2018 7:36 pm

Hi I'm traveling to Burlington from NY Monday, October 8th until Saturday the 13th. Anyone know of any great locations near Burlington? I was hoping to find some others that would be interested in checking out some fall foliage to photograph. It's my first time in Vermont, so I'd love to meet some people.

I'd love to go to Groton State Forrest, but as of right now, I'll be on foot, so I'll be looking to use uber or a cab to get to some locations. (Or, ideally if you have a car, I could just pay for your expenses/lunch/gas if anyone is interested.) Even if you don't, I'm sure we can get to some great spots!

Thanks!
Chris

Hi Chris: I won't be traveling to Vermont this year, or you could "hitch a ride" with me. BM may want to weigh in on this, but I wouldn't think Uber is going to be a great alternative for you. Most of Vermont is very rural and the distances are great (my friend, Rich and I coined the term "Vermont miles" on our first trip. Everyplace seemed to be about 2-3 times as far and take 2-3 times as long to get to) :-) .

Maybe renting a car - at least for a part of the time - would be a better option?

If it sounds too good to be true, its probably . . . .

Rental car is going to be your best bet. Uber is available in Burlington but you may not be able to find a ride far out of town.
I bet you could get an Uber to Mt. Philo State Park though. If you went there closer to end of your trip you may find some good color. For the beginning part of your trip you'll want to head east toward the mountains.
