Abby, thanks for discovering, sharing information about and posting pictures of Chandler Pond Farm. Rain or shine, love seeing what that area looks like. Your announcement extends a nice invitation to come on out to enjoy this beautiful farm as well as support the locals. Definitely, will be a great photography op destination for many in different seasons! Love the picture of the Sugar Shack and the Red barn with the beautiful tree.

Note to Moderators, is it possible to transfer some of this season's great new postings under the current sticky threads of same topics?
There's a lot of very good Pond postings. Retrieving information, pictures and directions to the new ponds shared this season would be made easier if posted within the sticky thread: Ponds and lakes. Stannard Mountain warrants a permanent place in the sticky post of Best Scenic Views/Must See Spots

Soooooooo jealous you got to walk around the property. We went past but I felt bad just stopping without notice. It was downpouring though, not just a little rain. It was beautiful from what we saw. LOVE the sugarhouse image. We drove nearly 2 hours out there and it just dumped and dumped. I'll pretend I took the shots you got ;) What are you doing to post-process your images? Your photos are so rich!

Gorgeous pictures! Can you give me some good directions to get to this farm? I am using the Delorme atlas and I see Chandler Pond. Is it right there?

Thank you Abby! I will probably have many more questions in the next few weeks. Time to get really serious in planning our upcoming trip!

Ok Abby tell me the truth, I can take it :wink:
My plan is to visit the Chandler Pond Farm on October 7th. Also Stannard Moutain Rd and then Jay Peak.
From what I am hearing from all of you, season is a little early. Do you think I should skip this drive and plan something else? We are staying near Lyndonville and I can't really change that. What do you think?

Since you are staying in Lyndonville, Chandler Pond Farm is only a couple of miles out of town and worth a quick trip, even after peak season. There should still be some leaves on the 7th.

Carol: I would like to go here too before Stannard Mtn. Road. Are you and the photog club going there this weekend? Maybe you can let us know how it will be for color Monday. My plan is for Phil to take me to the NEK Monday the 30th but he doesn't know about this side visit yet. :mrgreen:

Soory.....so I'm sure that is why the colors don't look as far along as I thought they should be.....because it was taken longer than 2 days ago. DUH!

I was just going to write that :D
The full moon was the 18th and the trees have changed a lot in the week since then. The Lyndonville area should be peaking over the next week. Oddly, it seems like the lower elevations are peaking earlier. This may be due to the multiple cold frosty/dense foggy mornings that were in the valleys earlier this month. The higher elevations 1500'+ were above the fog and warmed up more quickly in the mornings.

Thank you Carol and NEK,
After I posted I got to thinking that I'm not just going there for the foliage anyway. I will definitely buy something while I'm there. Maybe some maple syrup or apples--yummy! Just has to be something consumable or small enough to fit in my luggage to fly back to Texas! No pumpkins for me!
My attitude at this point just has to be that if we don't get there in time for peak, I will at least know what Stannard Mountain Road is like for future visits. I will wait on news next week from all of you to decide about Jay Peak.
We have driven Hazens Notch Rd a couple of times and it was past peak but still very nice.
CT, I read your post about stressing. Surely not :)
I am so sorry that I won't get there sooner. :(

I got an email from CT about 10 seconds after she saw your post. She wants to go there yesterday, but we decided to go Monday. The email came before I had my 3rd cup of coffee, so I had trouble remembering where the farm was. Now I know.

Carol: thanks for posting about Chandler Pond Farm. What a beautiful location and the vegetables in the store were just top of the line. We didn't have time to go to the barn area and scout around and I forgot about Flagg Pond! Next year I hope to spend more time up there. What a lovely place. No one was in the store so I left my purchase money in a box. I could have gone nuts in there if I was able to buy produce to take home but I'm here for quite a few more days and it would have spoiled. The carrots were simply delicious however! :)
