Re: Fall 2022

Hi Gator! Nice to see you back here on the forum. I'm so excited for autumn in Vermont too! Our trees are pushing buds quickly now and soon we will be fully leafed out. Where do you stay in Vermont? I'm currently planning all my hiking trips starting late June. Not to fast forward our beautiful spri...

Hiking in Dorset Vermont! Excellent Website!

https://dorsetvt.org/hike.html Now that I've fallen in love with the town of Dorset, I've discovered this great website for hiking in the area. There are so many hikes it is amazing. Since I've entered the hiking phase/passion of my life, I am planning to try a few on a couple of daytrips. The one t...

Re: Overnight Color Explosion in Northern CT! Good Things Come to Those Who Wait!

Hi Colorado Mom, nice to see you back here. I have a lot of favorites :D but I do love the Waitsfield/Warren area. If I were to chose an ultimate favorite, it would be Peacham. Are you going to try to get up to these two places at all next fall? Also, if I were to buy my second home in Vermont, it t...

Re: Overnight Color Explosion in Northern CT! Good Things Come to Those Who Wait!

Hi Bob, glad you had a nice time in Vermont. Did you mean the West Hill House? That is where I stayed a couple of years ago in Warren. 4 star accommodations! I agree with you about the hiking spot. :D It is certainly a must do as you said. We hiked that land trust called Mine Hill Preserve and it wa...

Re: Overnight Color Explosion in Northern CT! Good Things Come to Those Who Wait!

Another peak foliage drive today through some towns west of 84 and south of Washington Depot. Just amazing colors in the towns of Roxbury and Southbury. The most memorable road, one we have never taken before which will certainly be a repeater next year, Old Roxbury Road. The dirt road was so narrow...

Re: Connecticut Fall Foliage 2021

Kevin, we took a drive to Storrs UCONN campus for lunch yesterday and the color was really coming on strong especially in Tolland and Rockville. Heading west it got even better. So I am optimistic we are heading into a great but delayed season (maybe 10 days later than normal) here in CT. Get back o...

Overnight Color Explosion in Northern CT! Good Things Come to Those Who Wait!

Well oh my! :shock: The cold last night along with light rain popped the colors out here in force and I couldn't believe my drive today. Simsbury, Avon, Canton - all peak or approaching peak. Avon Mountain traveling west to east on Nod Road with low fog took my breath away. I've never seen Avon Moun...

Re: Sparkling Autumn Day! Lovin' Me Some More Vermont! 10/17/21 Manchester, Dorset, Pownal! (and more back roads)!

Hi Aziz! It just takes a day or two for things to morph into past peak. Sorry you missed it. Did you check those loops in Dorset in the Hollows? Jiminy Peak was beautiful when we went through and only mid stage. We found that on a cloudy day the colors actually looked more vibrant. Keep trying! Don'...

Re: Connecticut Fall Foliage 2021

Kevin, try to get out of Enfield then, it's too urban and trees are affected differently in these settings. I would head south on 7 and get into the dirt back roads because the trees that were green are now ready to change and the color is coming. Head into the back roads of Roxbury, Southbury and W...

Re: Connecticut Fall Foliage 2021

UPDATE: We are experiencing some very cold temps at night and along with these gorgeous sunshiny days, I expect the foliage to pop here in northern CT and west central CT this week and weekend. Much of the state remains at this point in early to mid stages of color with isolated areas of past peak a...

Greetings Vermont Fall Foliage Fanatics, Geeks, foliage addicts (new one) or anyone by any other name who loves Vermont!

Re: Connecticut Fall Foliage 2021

Just an FYI, it has gotten quite breezy here in the last couple of hours. I'm thankful we are still "green" in most of CT, but the leaves that are fragile are blowing off and around. Not sure what is happening up north but our rain forecasted here will be light. It is mid 70s but several cool nights...

Re: Best bets for peak fall foliage after Saturday’s rain.

Hey, It would be beneficial to Tim and SOV, that this information stay on our SOV foliage forum, although it is obvious I can't control that! Once it's out there it's for the world to see. :mrgreen: I've even seen my screen name linked to various sites for referral back to this forum. I've been quot...
