Re: OMG THE SUN IS OUT!!!!!!!!!!!

If you were lucky enough to be out in the NEK this morning-noontime, the colors were/are blowing up! The drive to work this morning was kinda bleh with low clouds and fog, with good color close-up. But that all changed mid-morning. I was lucky that I forgot some stuff at home and the drive back and ...

Re: Nek central loop (from the drives thread). 10/1

P.S. This morning looked like there was some excellent picture potential with the sun peaking through the clouds and really good color. Unfortunately, I'm at work :? :(

Re: Nek central loop (from the drives thread). 10/1

Ha! Thats great! I saw a couple cars out there and wondered if it was anyone from the forum. When we turned onto sugarbush there was a car sitting there (taking pictures?). We waited for tht car to pull away so we could snap a shot. Perhaps that was you? Also, i completely agree with you on the con...

Re: How about rainy days and Sundays??????

These two "tunnels" run under the Northbound and southbound lanes of rte 91. The colors were GREAT here. Peak. Gorgeous. http://carolsmith.zenfolio.com/img/v34/p393255990-3.jpg That is a great shot! Duck Pond is just over two miles up the hill from these "Tubes" tunnels that you took pictures of. Y...

Re: Two Amazing Long View Roads in Lyndonville: Must Drives!

Sounds like you had a great time 8)
You really hit it at a good time this year. You really can't go wrong with any of the hilltop roads that run the ridges between Lake Willougby and Burke Mtn.

Re: State Foliage Report No.4 issued Friday Sept 30th, 2011

It is amazing how the foliage has almost stagnated in color for almost a week. The past week's warm weather really slowed things down. Based on the color that was out there last weekend we should have easily been at peak this weekend here in the NEK. Looks like peak may be delayed until early next w...

Re: Tomorrow's (9/28) drive for critique

:shock: Looks awfully grey and brown. Someone talk me off the ledge, I'm freaking out. The last several of days of above normal temps, fairly high humidity, and no rain has caused the colors to fade. Last night's rain revived them a bit and the upcoming cool weather this weekend should bring out th...

Re: NEK Romp 9/28/11

This post scares me. Am I screwed for this weekend? Colder weather on saturday/sunday...yes, but do the colors pop immediately or several days later (when I'm gone)? I agree with WXMAN that the warm humid air has muted the color over the last few days. However, I really think the rain tomorrow, com...

I think Photo-op may be referring to my NEK Central Loop from the Great Drives sticky thread.

Re: Tomorrow's (9/28) drive for critique

That sounds like a solid plan. I was out in the hills south of St Johnsbury this afternoon and the color is good. The higher you go the better. Tomorrow morning should be good for pond mist as well. Hopefully it doesn't turn into full blown fog for you. If you find it is too foggy at Ricker Pond or ...

Re: First Trip To Vermont! (itenerary help)

Thank RIMHfire and PWT54. Based on the replies so far here's my revised itenerary: 9/30 Arrive boston, drive right up I-93 and do the Kanc (it seems 10/3 might be late for the kanc) 10/1 NEK: morning do the NEK Central loop (from the great drives thread), afternoon do a Peacham/Danville/Cabot/Groto...

Re: Post Updates of Road Closures and Alternate Routes

Most of Northern VT escaped the major devistation that you are seeing on the national news outlets. Almost every road is open there are no problems with accessing this part of Vermont. I-91 and all of the roads in this part of the state are intact save for a few isolated rural roads. That said, I fe...

Kirby Mtn Road/Severence Hill

Severence Hill between Route 2 in East St Johnsbury and Red Village in Lyndon is completely paved and easily passible by car. This is a road I frequently take when going to NH from Lyndonville. Off of Severence Hill is Willey Farm Rd which turns into North Kirby Road. This is a nice drive over the a...
