Fall Foliage

How are the leaves looking? Will they stay on the trees until we get to Brattleboro on 11th October? We are coming from the other side of the world and I'm worried we will miss them.

It may not be prime when you get here, because things change, but I'd put money on your being in Brattleboro at the very time there to view the leaves. And if it isn't prime, you wont be missing color, there will still be pleanty to see.

Zeehan: You can never know about Mother Nature's exact timing on this as well as many other wonders! We'll keep our fingers crossed for you. You can always head south from Brattleboro to chase some foliage down. Chances are you'll be able to see some in the area of say Northampton, Massachusetts, only an hour south, if they are gone by in Brattleboro.

Thank you both for your responses, much appreciated. We will be coming UP to Brattleboro by train so I guess we should see some foliage on the way, yes? Also, we are heading DOWN to Boston by bus after Brattleboro, so hopefully we'll see some pretty sights on that trip too.

Well, we are back home and had a wonderful time. We saw the most spectacular scenery and I think 11 October was spot on for leaf-peeping! Stayed in Brattleboro and drove to Putney, Weston and Woodstock and saw some very pretty sights. We took a few wrong turns and were fortunate to see some beautiful waterways that we weren't expecting. It was awesome.
