Vermont is open for fall foliage exploring! — 6 Comments

  1. Well Ann, assuming you are in the northern half of VT on Oct 1st then you should be very happy. I’m getting reports on the forum and for this year you will have to kind of sort through the reports to see what is current. Also you can check Yankee’s foliage page (link is on the side of the page) and they have a map that is compiled from user reports… but their reports can be very subjective and many folks see a single tree turning and they feel the entire zone is turning.
    For instance I saw a maple that always turns early and it looks healthy but the top half is starting to turn and the bottom half is showing signs of following.. later this week that tree will be turning… I bet someone will call this area turning because of the one tree… (I wouldn’t)Now if I drove between Georgetown and Groveland (Route 97 in Ma) and all the trees are showing a little color then I would call it turning… But we are 3 weeks before all the trees along this road catch up, maybe longer.

    Anyway please stop in from time to time and chat with us in the forum or even check my facebook page. look for New England fall foliage Vistaphotography The other NEFF is Yankee Magazines page and it also is nice but I don’t hang there to answer questions as much..
    I’m glad you like the video, it was a labor of love..

  2. A friend and I will be in Vermont about October 1st to see the foliage. I am so glad I found your site and watched your video. What a beautiful song and your photography is breathtaking.

  3. Jeff, the song and your photos are wonderful. Ron and I visited Brattleboro Farmers Market on Sept 3, only a week after Irene. The market area was a raging torrent on that Sunday but the water went down and over 100 volunteers showed up to do clean up and re-build the stands. When we visited, it was very festive with a great variety of vegetables and fruit and ethnic food stands. People traveling Vermont should check the list of markets and what kind of vendors are there. It sure was a fun place to have lunch and to get some goodies to bring home.

  4. Thanks Kathy, my problem is I would like to do something more but I guess by keeping the plight of those in Vermont up front and make everyone aware then I’ll consider it something. When you are running around the NEK and if you find a lodging place that could use some free ad space I put in my forum a topic for owners on B&Bs and Inns etc… to put any specials or just to say they have space for Sept or Oct… I hope to get the word out on that. http://jeff-foliage.com/forums/topic/fall-foliage-lodging-deals/

  5. Loved your post–so thoughtful. Tyler and I still plan to explore as much of the NE Kingdom and vicinity as we can. It looks like from the road closures that most of the damage is along Rte 100 and the central and southern end of the state. Our hearts go out to those who have lost homes, crops, businesses, etc. Irene reminded us that we are never safe from Nature’s wrath. We assumed that any damage would be confined to the coast–we thought Vermont was safe. Watching the videos on youtube of those generally peaceful streams and rivers turning into raging torrents showed us that you can never assume anything where storms are concerned. Loved your photos and video as well!
