Six Month Countdown to Autumn in Vermont 2019!

Postby ctyanky » Wed Mar 13, 2019 7:44 am

Well here we are, just about 6 months and 10 days until the autumnal equinox! (But who is counting? :wink: ). Minnesotaman reminded me a couple of days ago that he couldn't believe all the snow they had in MN while we are nearing the six month countdown until fall foliage season in Vermont begins. I agree! So much snow on the ground, what a cold, icy winter we have had in New England.

Despite the fact that I'm currently chasing the sugarhouse trail in CT, MA and VT, thoughts never stray far from my beloved Vermont fall foliage excursions. I've been checking lodging websites and prime weekends are rapidly filling up in many inns, bed and breakfasts and airbnbs. I'm lining up my horseback riding trips around my four lodging stays and am looking into new hiking trails in these areas, mostly in the NEK and Stowe locations. This year, as I am in Peacham for almost a week, I'm hoping to hit as many of the NEK Fall Foliage Festivals as possible for their dinners, craft fairs and tours. It's been a dream of mine to stay right in Peacham and this is the year! 8) I'm also thrilled to be staying right in Stowe mid-week for a change of pace, just love the area and the hustle and bustle of this lovely town. I'm so excited to be staying in another place just outside of Stowe on a horse farm. A full stable right outside my window! Ahhhh, just the idea of it makes me want to get my riding gear ready! :mrgreen:

Soon our focus will be on finalizing fall foliage trip plans so that we can narrow down all the fun activities to pursue while tooling about the most beautiful autumn back roads in the great state of Vermont. :D I love the planning involved and am always glad to assist friends and neighbors with their autumn trips in Vermont and throughout New England. It just makes me so happy! :D :D :D

The countdown begins! CT

Is anyone else ready for winter to come to a close? Spring is here but it still feels like early March! :( I just saw that we may get a dose of wet snow this coming Friday and I say "no more"! When I was up for sugaring weekend March 23rd, the snow was relatively deep and felt like January!!!!

The grass is greening in my neck of the woods in northern CT, the trees are approaching effervescence, but buds seem another week or so away. I'm ready to move on to those emerging mint green leaves already. Our lovely leaves of autumn coming alive before my eyes. :D

I see that some of the fall festivals and activities are now being populated on various sites and that is very exciting to me! I am going to the Autumn on the Green in Danville this year and the Hardwick Fall Festival (same weekend) as I am in Peacham for the week and very close to these towns. I expect the NEK Fall Foliage Festivals in the 7 towns to come aboard in June and will post them as they do. I am thinking of now extending my trip into the Columbus Day Weekend and have come across many Airbnb's already filled in areas that I am interested in. We are getting closer! 8)

Happy Spring! May the true warmth cometh! (I'm off today to get my seasonal pool pass to enlighten my day. :lol:)
