Here's what the VT department of tourism is saying about the color as this season draws to a close;
The highest elevations and hardwood ridges have moved beyond peak, but brilliant foliage remains in downslope valleys and protected forest coves and benches throughout the state. While bare branches are beginning to appear, the trees are still showcasing a surprisingly high volume of leaves.

Bests Bets for Color: The Champlain and Connecticut River Valleys have plenty of green and the promise of even more color ahead as they reach peak.

This transition point in the foliage season is especially notable as red, orange, and yellow leaves cover the ground but also persist in the canopy above, creating a colorful mosaic to hike through. As the scene shifts from overhead to below your feet or bike tires, it’s a nice time to see into the woods and discover the stone walls and cellar holes of the past.

I have seen lots of pictures of the Pomfret/Woodstock area on social networks, displaying excellent foliage.
Of course it’s social networks, so it’s hard to say how much of it is due to photo editing, but it seemed spectacular.

I was surprised to see that, because forum has been unusually quiet in the last two weeks :)
