Hi Wentworth. I thought so, but I am planning to make my pilgrimage to VT a week earlier this year, around October 5. It seems like I always miss it due to some reason or another.

Thanks again.

PWT - You are incredible, and just as diligent. Where I live in CT, the leaves are actually about a week away from peak! In fact, my lawn looks like a late October day with all the leaves on it. It definitely must have been the lack of rain, as the colors are basically turning yellow then falling. S...

AWESOME! When we visit Weston, we are getting kind of bored of the same 'ol trip to Queechie (Simon Pierce Glass and Queecie Gorge. These towns are ones we never visited, so I will be sure to add them to our list. In fact, I started another post in the forum to try and elicit info just like this. Th...

THANKS! We are always looking for those 'last minute rides', and this one sure looks worth the trip. Just last night, I was surfing Vermont Real Estate listings, 'fantasizing' when the day comes when I retire there! That's a long time from now, but it doesn't hurt to set your sights on something wor...

There are a very few trees here in Killingworth and surrounding towns where I see some very minor color. My lawn actually has some fallen leaves, yellow in color, but I think that is due to tree-stress more than an early indication of fall. My wife also decorates the house for each season, and fall ...

Highly Recommended 'Inns' and 'B&Bs'

Hi Everyone - I thought I would start a post where people can post their HIGHEST recommendation on 'unforgettable' places they have visited. Site links would also be helpful, as well as any pictures. I know there are links to vendor and chamber of commerce-sponsored sites containing this info, but I...

It's funny how we long for the 'Dog Days of Summer', then can't wait for the Autumn season to begin! For me and my wife, it's looking forward to those crisp, clear, autumn days when a sweater and hot coffee are a welcome change to bathing suits and cool drinks. There is something special about that ...

Re: Trip to Weston this weekend......

Boy, I sure do envy those who live in Vermont. You are soo lucky! We live on the water in Clinton, however, I keep telling my wife that I definitely want to retire in Vermont! The sad part is I have to wait 30 years!!!!

Thanks dfpvt! What routes are Woodstock, Chester or Grafton on? We are staying at the Inn at Weston, right next to the Vermont Country Store.

Thanks pwt54. Do you think we are late? It's a science trying to gauge it! I'm going to be bumming if it rains again!

Trip to Weston this weekend......

Hi everyone - I absolutely love this site! This weekend, my wife and I will be staying in Weston. Last year, we went a week earlier, and the foliage barely started. I have been watching this forum, and hopefully this weekend will be better. Unfortunately, the forecast is calling for rain, just like ...
