Peak colors GLORIOUS!!!

Jump to last reply

Ok, this is our first trip to chase the colors, but oh, how it turned out. After a miserable week in Montreal and Quebec, where we faced rain, 30 mph winds and continual grey skies, we crossed into Vermont on Oct 6. A freeze that night with a star filled clear sky, was a great omen.
We have seen 70 degrees and clear skies, and beautiful, beautiful colors in northern Vermont nd the White Mountains.
Colors appear to be peaking, but the turn in the weather to rain and wind starting tonight (Wed) will probably strip the trees.
We think we hit it right! It's been great.
Now, in Waitsfield, we see the devistation from the flooding from the remnants of Irene. Hay bales in rocks above the highway. Looked up from the road at a tire in a tree in Moretown.
Incredible!
Trip report will follow in a week or so.
