My wife and I made our sixth trip to Vermont last week (from Texas) for the sole purpose of witnessing the grandeur of autumn. For those of you who like the visual evidence of God's handiwork, here are some pix:

Looking nice up there. The leaves have not started to change here in southern NY yet.

Living in Vermont I can definitely understand why people come from out of state to see it. You can see the same colors around the rest of New England, but Vermont has something special about it.

From someone who grew up in Massachusetts, Vermont (and New Hampshire, in my opinion) are spectacular. Different sort of character than Massachusetts.

Those shots are great. Where in Vermont were you? I was just there today looking for foliage myself, in the Woodstock area, and fall there was not in full splendour yet - some brown and red hues but still a lot of (faded) greens. The town of Woodstock is lovely, though.


Read this very carefully, I shall write this only once!

Thank you for sharing these beautiful pictures. I regularly used to spend my summer vacation in Massachusetts some 15 years ago, and trips to Vermont and New Hampshire always were very nice.

Pyrex: Basically, I started in the south central part of the state and worked my way up. I did go through Woodstock and it was as you described. But north and south of there, the colors were fantastic. The best color I saw was near Peacham, just south of St. Johnsbury.

MarSciGuy: Actually, most folks feel Vermont is superior to New Hampshire when it comes to foliage. May be a matter of personal taste.

One of the few things I really miss about living in Vermont. Used to live in a small town about 30 miles into the state if you took 89 from New Hampshire. Last year the foliage was absolutely stunning! Glad you enjoyed your time in the Green Mountain State!

Thanks for the beautiful slideshow...we're looking forward to this weekend: flying into MHT (also from Texas) and staying/exploring the Lakes and White Mountains areas.

From what I heard, the fall foliage came early and some parts are already past peak. Can anyone confirm which areas are in decline?

Not sure if you are familiar with the towns, but I grew up in Sandwich, NH and foliage there looks from a few people on Facebook like it is still full on, or was last weekend. Enjoy!

I'm not exactly unbiased, having grown up in Central NH, so I suppose I'll take your word for it

I go to school in Hanover, and there are tour buses that come through town every fall, usually filled with senior citizens that are on a trip to look at the changing colors of the leaves in the region.

All of the local residents refer to them as "leaf peepers" -- cracked me up the first time I heard the term. However, I can understand why people come -- the area is beautiful whenever you go driving around this time of year.

"leaf peepers"

Quite literally they stop dead in the middle of the roads around my hometown when they see a particularly amazing vista...causes a bit of angst amongst the locals, and doesn't hurt in pickin gthem out from the locals either...

Looks like Sandwich is "sandwiched" between the Lakes and the Mountains. We'll cross our fingers, thanks!
