We are considering a trip to Vermont, as well as NH and Maine in early October to explore the area as well as experience the fall foliage. What are the crowds and traffic like then? I hate to think that the roads are clogged with cars all doing the scenic drives, and each pull-off on the side of the road is full of cars and people jockeying for a good photo. We don't expect to have the place to ourselves, but don't want to visit then if the beauty of nature is obscured by people. What's it really like during the peak of the colors season?
