Vermont Fall Foliage

nsp_131012_fall_blog_01 My husband Dave, our chocolate lab Rosalita and I did some touring recently to find beautiful fall colors. Once again, Vermont did not disappoint! I find myself getting really enamored of the light coming through the leaves, and the yellows this year were amazing. A delight to experience the bright and vibrant colors.

Here's a gallery of a few more photos. We walked up to Silver Lake in Salisbury, and on our way down we came upon a newly married couple. They took their vows on Lennie's Lookout trail, up at the lake. They asked me to shoot a few photos of their group, and were happy to discover it was not my " first wedding"!   I asked Nicole and Jeff to shed their backpacks and walk out into the sunshine at the bottom of the trail. They were lovely!

 

Vermont Foliage

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.

Ah, Fall!
