Fall Foliage Discussion / Re: Please Read, If you have a question about Fall colors
« Last post by morph2-7 on October 17, 2017, 11:50:47 AM »
We're back home from a 9 day trip to Vermont, New Hampshire, a little bit of Maine and Massachusetts (Boston only). Scenic route 100 in Vermont is much more memorable to me compared to Kancamagus Hwy route 112 in New Hampshire.

The following locations are beyond beautiful and peaceful: Jenne Farm, Cloudland farm (aka Sleepy Hollow?). There are plenty beautiful photo opportunities along the roads leading to those farms. We're so glad that we visited them even during heavy downpour as we left the motel where we stayed. Thanks to God for stopping the rain entirely as we arrived at Jenne farm.

I got Smuggler's Notch imprinted in my mind. That place looks heavenly. My jaw dropped when I saw the tree tunnel (canopy of yellow foliage covering route 108. OMG, I jumped right out of my car to setup my tripod and camera. Franconia area (North of Lincoln NH) is also jaw dropping. There are more bright red color in Franconia NH than Smuggler's Notch.

Another beautiful (and unexpected find) is a dirt road on my way from Lyndon VT to Guildhall VT right off route 114 (it's called Victory Rd which turns into Granby Rd as we head east all the way to Guildhall grist mill). There are lots of red, orange and yellow foliage there.

The only problem I have with this leave peeping trip is that the beautiful places are scattered all over the states. We all have to commute hundreds of miles to see them. My wife and I did not stay in a single hotel/motel more than 1 night because we kept moving to a different location more than 50 to 100 miles away everyday. It's not worth the effort to drive back to the same hotel where we started the day so we check in/out in different areas every single day.

Fall Foliage Discussion / Help with short trip from Boston
« Last post by PacificNW3 on October 04, 2017, 02:31:45 PM »
Wondering if someone would please help me with planning a short fall foliage trip starting in Boston on October 19th. We have reservations on Cape Cod starting October 21st. Are there any short drives (one overnight) that would make sense? I am unfamiliar with New England so I am hoping someone with some expertise will help me out. Thanks so much in advance.

I've been to Maine a few times but haven't take professional Autumn pictures. I want to this time. Where can we go for peak fall color and when? Thanks!

What is the good time for peak color, given the leaves this time?

Thank you!!

I live in MA and have never visited VT. I must go. This time due to the warm climate, I'm unsure when the leaves will turn. I planned to go this week, but since I hear there isn't much color, the next time I can leave is October 13. Is that too late? *bit worried*

I planned to do the following - Boston to Burlington (then come south) - Stowe - Waterbury - Bennington - Brattleboro farmer's market - Boston.

What is important to see / visit / add and what to delete from the itinerary, please?

Thank you!!

Hi everyone, I was wondering if any of you know the answer to this question for Deerfield fair? If I were to pay for the $30 for unlimited rides, do I also pay the fee of $10 to get in? Thanks for your reply

I'm not sure about that. I couldn't find anything online when I just googled it.

Afterwork I get a little cranky, I'm old... Its what I do.

Anyways, the colors are now running later so you should be fine... Hear that Mother Nature???? It will be fine!

She never listens to me...  :-[

I think we'll hopefully be seeing some nice color developing this week and into next week. I think if you want to drive up into the sough NH region (lakes region) and then over to VT and back into CT I would look at around the 15th to the 19th of Oct.

Things are up in the air right now as someone pissed off Mother Nature and she took away all our pretty colors. But she is starting to cool down and we should see them return later this week...
