Back home and posting pix to this thread. Hope you like them. Some great color in the NEK - best I've seen in past 4 years. Thanks to this forum for pointing out the best spots.

Re: Owl's Head Overlook?

Great shot Abby. Owl's Head looks so much better than when I shot it last year - it was just...brown...then. Tempting me to head back up but don't know if the color will stay by the time I get up there...

Jobs Pond at Sunrise

I drove up and stayed in Island Pond, VT on Monday/Tuesday with the hope of capturing ponds with good color. The drive up was depressing with clouds the whole way up. I did find a new waterfall that put me in a better mood but I went to bed having captured few solid shot. The next morning, I woke be...

Re: Island Pond, Jobs Pond, Newport and Big Falls

Update: Jobs this am was absolutely incredible. Light was awesome from 7:00-7:10am...got there just in time. Long pond was nice. Maybe hits peak in 3-4 days? Danville and Old Country road was great and not a scary road at all. Light at that point wasn't great. Heading home so will hopefully add pix ...

Re: Island Pond, Jobs Pond, Newport and Big Falls

Thanks NEK. May just play it by ear. Currently planning Jobs early then up E Charleston Rd and down Willoughby Lake rd to Longs. I'm thinking Barton then Greensboro but would love to hear if those aren't yet peaking. I have no idea what elevations those areas are at.

Island Pond, Jobs Pond, Newport and Big Falls (updated-pix)

I drove up to the NEK in Vermont on Monday morning with plans to hit up some ponds and capture foliage at its peak up there. The weather on the drive up was gray with off/on rains and so I decided to start the trip with a stop at a waterfall in Troy, VT. I had looked for waterfalls in the area the n...

Re: Nag WXMAN about the weather thread

Thanks WXMAN Really appreciate the hyperfocal weather report :) Just rechecked all the usual weather sites and they have all extended the chance of rain into Wednesday as well. I'm guessing that whatever front has come over us here on the North Shore of MA is stalling a bit and causing all of this. ...

Re: Nag WXMAN about the weather thread

Alright WXMAN...I gotta ask - NEK on Oct 2nd or 3rd? Specifically, Island Pond area.
Was planning on driving up 10/1 and shooting 10/2 starting early. Long range forecast has me concerned and am leaning toward pushing by 1 day (luckily I've got the flexibility). Any thoughts?

Re: Island Pond - When to go, where to stay?

Thanks Carol I also found this on Google Maps which looks like it has potential. It's the view from Mount Bluff looking back down at Island pond. Not sure if that's a drivable view or needs a good long hike. [mods - please help me shrink this-straight link from panoramio-credit: Ratbas] http://stati...

Island Pond - When to go, where to stay?

I'm thinking of driving up from the North Shore of Massachusetts to Island Pond, VT on Oct 1st. Looking to stay the night (any recs) then hit local ponds at first light for some pond fog/mist action and then try for the Lewis Pond overlook. Any suggestions on lodging? Any thoughts on color for Oct 1...

Re: Foliage Report

Hey PWT54,
I've been dying to do the Lewis Pond overlook and Island Pond area since stumbling on this forum a few years back. Any thoughts on how it might look for an Oct 1st trip? I take it my '02 Civic might not be ideal for the overlook road?
Thanks

Randolph and Stowe Hollow road - 10/10

Drove up to Randolph and Stowe after reading the reports on here and thought I would share the views from yesterday.
