The Fall foliage peepers have lots of questions…
I try to make the time and answer their questions, and I hope by posting portions here with my answers will help all of you make your plans. *Note, I will try to answer in a timely manner but please be patient… The answer may end up here first! 🙁
February has flown by and was a busy one for us.We are now back on track to planning our fall foliage trip to New England and appreciate so much the input you have given.. I have checked out your suggestions for lodging and they look good. We have found that driving into Vermont from Albany will shorten our drive. We are going to look into airline tickets and car rental and weigh the difference in costs considering the cost of gas and the extra time to spend in New England.
Well hi again …
One if by land, two if by sea, basically if you choose to come up through New York you have to remember one thing; the color is moving North to South and East to West (higher altitudes to lower except in swampy areas) so the earlier you hit New York, the less likely you are to find any real color.That said, coming through Lake Placid or any of those areas of the Adirondacks will be visually stimulating. You could go to Fort Ticonderoga on the New York side of Lake Champlain and then just North of there is a ferry to cross over into Vermont or you can drive up as you suggested, even further and cross over into Burlington Vermont. There is no downside to doing it, either way though. Jeff "Foliage" Folger You can purchase images by visiting my Fine Art Gallery websites

I started with Yankee Magazine as their first blogger on everything fall foliage. Now I blog on my own blog on my favorite subject, telling leaf peepers where the fall foliage is showing up in New England and helping them (to some extent) plan their fall foliage vacations.
