Vermont in October is one of my favorite places to be in the Fall Season. The amazingly bright reds, yellows, oranges and purples seem to glow so much brighter here than in other area of New England. We will spend a few days exploring the southern half of Vermont. We will have scenic drives each day through the  Green Mountains. I have made nearly 20 trips to Vermont and I can never get enough of it. We will concentrate our efforts in a close circle centered around Manchester, Vermont. It's a stunningly beautiful town with many shops and fine places to eat. Depending on where the colors is this year, we may take a drive up towards central and northern Vermont for fall colors and more waterfalls.  There are many covered bridges in Vermont as well and I hope to swing by a couple of them. If we have time we will head up to the Covered Bridge in Cabot, VT, which is pictured in my slideshow. It's a great structure, but far out of our way... If there is a decent chance that the Northern Lights are possible one night, we may head up towards Cabot, if not, we will stay around Southern Vermont.

Most of our days  will be spent out in the field driving to different locations and visiting quaint country towns with fall colors exploding around every turn.
