2017—Welcome To Vermont

Our first full day to see fall colors in Vermont’s premier ski region, Killington, started off with a bang,  shortly after 7 AM Tuesday morning.    We didn’t actually hear the bang.  We had just arrived at Kent Pond and were starting to set up our gear when Jonathan, the newbie in the group  that included Emerson, me, and of course, Moose, heard the tell tale hiss of a tire  losing air. The right rear tire of our Ford Expedition was quickly losing pressure so we aborted our plans, loaded back into the Expedition and we hissed and hustled down the road to Rutland, about 15 miles away.  We found a Midas Auto shop that had just opened and could fit us in immediately.  By 9AM we were back at Kent Pond.

We seem to have hit perfect fall colors just as they peak this week.  It’s fascinating to see the differences in microclimates depending on modest changes in direction and elevation.   But, Vermont’s state tree, the sugar maple, takes front and center with the leaves ranging from brilliant yellow to vibrant orange to deep crimson.
