It was one of those cool, rainy, gray fall days that make you want to curl up inside and read a book, and yet we ventured out to view the emerging foliage with a day trip to Vermont's Northeast Kingdom. Dave, Rosalita and I drove back roads visiting ponds and hilltop lookouts. We were delighted by the abundant red and orange hues, and white birches that peaked out behind their vibrant maple neighbors.
It was a lovely day with vibrancy and calmness: so quiet and beautiful, so comfortable and energizing.
A perfect day in Vermont to enjoy the colors and smells and light and faint mist, then rain. Our cozy home awaited us, with a beer and snacks and the first fire of the season.
