IN SEARCH of FALL FOLIAGE in VERMONT

fall

 

Once fall comes around  the air gets crisp and clean and we long for those vibrant colors that fall foliage brings in New England.  It’s time to carve pumpkins, buy mums and cornstalks, bob for apples, design our Halloween costumes and relish the break from the heat of summer before the winter inevitably buries everything with a blanket of snow.

Can’t live without mums in the fall

I spent last weekend road tripping through Vermont in search of all those fall experiences. We ate cider donuts at the Equinox Nursery in Manchester,VT http://www.equinoxvalleynursery.com/  and had lunch at The Little Rooster also in Manchester (a personal favorite for the last 25 years). Then it was up Route 7 to Rutland and over to Killington and Woodstock.  Woodstock, VT may be one of the most charming towns anywhere in New England.

We were lucky enough to snag a room at the Kedron Valley Inn in South Woodstock http://www.kedronvalleyinn.com/   before heading south to Weston, CT on Route 100 and then to Okemo in Ludlow, VT.

We took the mountain road to the top of Okemo Mountain for some breathtaking views.  Sadly, very little foliage has changed yet but it is coming of course!  Here are some memories from the weekend. Enjoy!

Soon it will be time for skiing and I love the winter but there is something so special about fall here in the Northeast.  Come see us sometime!
