Foliage Will Be Great This Year
Most all the Vermont locals I have talked to agree that the fall leaf colors this year are much better than average. I am seeing more red than any year in recent memory. We had a very good foliage season last year and I think this will be better.

On Thursday, my wife and I drove down to Manchester VT in the southwestern part of the state. We saw a lot of good color already and those areas are just getting started. It seems like the eastern side of the state is a little ahead of the western side. We saw more color on Route 100 than we did on Route 7. Wherever you are, you will only need to drive around to find good color. Check with your innkeeper for their favorite drives and local reports on foliage color progress.

I took a picture of the hillside across the street from us because it looked so good in person but it did not show up as well in the camera. The sky is overcast today which makes the colors pop even more. However, there is a bit of moisture in the air from the rain we got yesterday and the camera picks up the mist in the air that the human eye can look through I guess.

Below is a better picture showing our parking lot just to give you a taste of what it looks like around here. I hope to get out and drive around Sunday or Monday (we're very busy this weekend) and take some photos of all this great foliage. The foliage should last several weeks but we get so busy that I have to get out whenever I can.

Speaking of which, we are full the first two weekends of October, as are most inns around here, but there are rooms available mid-week. If you are thinking of coming here to see this year's unusually good display of fall foliage, I suggest doing it mid-week if you can. We have an availability calendar on our web site and you will find the same on many other inn's websites as well.
