Re: Fantasy Sunrise This AM - My Vermont "Moment" for 2018 Foliage Season

Here is my Vermont moment for 2018.
I opened the curtains of our motel room in Bennington at 6:50 am last Sunday and saw this. As mentioned, most of this color came overnight, and wasn't there the previous day.

Re: Visitor from California - help needed to time foliage viewing for Southern VT

A week ago the hills around Shelburne Falls MA seemed promising, with 10-15% trees being bright orange/red and no leaf drop.
However I have no idea of how things have progressed in a week.

Re: Enfield, CT - Color change rapidly occuring

Beautiful picture Loafer! Curiosity/Naive question: what is it that determines the color? I mean, why does a tree turn red rather then orange or yellow? For example, last Sunday night/early morning trees in Bennington turned to a bright orange (almost fluorescent) and I didn't see many reds. On the ...

Re: My Trip in South Vermont and Berkshire Oct 12-14

In the report of my trip I forgot to mention the Equinox pond.
We found it probably 2 or 3 days past peak, and the light was definitely not the best for good pictures. And it was pouring.
But I will still have great memories of this beautiful pond.

Re: Procrastinated Enough!

Hi Dan! Bennington and the whole routes 7 and 7A up to Manchester were peaking last Sunday, while areas around Manchester (e.g. Mount Equinox) were just past peak. Not sure what you will find next weekend. South-East Vermont forget about it, unless something magic happens during this frosty week. Go...

Re: My Trip in South Vermont and Berkshire Oct 12-14

Here I am, back at work in Philly. Our trip was definitely too short and I miss New England already (Go Eagles though :) )! We spent 36 hours in Vermont, nearly half of them under a washout on Saturday. Next we drove on top of top of Mount Grelyock, then Mohawk trail up to bridge of Flowers, and the...

Re: HELP! We are here...color is not

Bennington and surrounding areas were awesome this morning. But if I were you I would go north: Rutland, Middlebury, and route 30 in general. Is the best part of VT right now: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=3952 I was in Jamaica/Townshend yesterday and I agree, very disappointing. So I headed north to Rutland ...

Re: North Central Massachusetts & CRV 10-14-18

After MT Greylock (definitely too early for the view), we drove the Mohawk and we saw nice color between North Adams and Florida.
Then, after the (beautiful) bridges of Flowers we also drove 112 and 9 to Northampton.
To my untrained eyes Rout 112 was actually beautiful!

It literally exploded overnight

OMG
In one night everything changed!
The hills around Bennington are all red and orange!!
The morning light makes them gorgeous.

I can’t believe how much it changed from yesterday

Rutland,VT

If you are looking for foliage in VT tomorrow I suggest going to Rutland. Been there this afternoon (thanks minnieb for the suggestion!) and it is very nice right now. We took a back road called notch road and it was colorful, with reds and oranges! In South Vermont there is color on Route 7 between...
