Fall Foliage in Vermont

When I lived in North Carolina – in the land of long leaf pines – I missed the colors of autumn. Vermont has more than made up for those years; it’s truly beautiful. Now I’m so used to these scenes, that I have to pause to remember how this wasn’t commonplace for my eyes. Here are some recent shots.

This post is also called: Mom & Dad, come visit me! 🙂 For anyone wondering about visiting Vermont in foliage season, late September – early October is the best. By Columbus Day, the weather gets finicky and many places are past foliage. Of course, southern to northern Vermont, valleys and hills vary. Do come, it’s lovely.
