Fall colors in Vermont

taking a walk..., originally uploaded by digijinx.

Had been to a cabin of a friend's in Vermont for a day. Boy! was it gorgeous up there. Made my stops on the Mohawk Trail to get there.
There was a private lake in the neighbour's back yard..and well it couldnt get more beautiful believe me.

New England is the place to be. Looking forward to next fall.

Fall Foliage White Mountains,NH-Weekend getaway

White mountains, NH as such is always a hit or miss for me. I end up being there for early peak or past peak. May be next time I should get it right. Timing is everything for fall colors isn't it? The drive thru I-91N via Vermont was very very scenic. In fact VT had more colors than NH! sigh!

This time I took the Mt.Washington Cog Railway and it was chugging along at 3 mph to the summit. At the summit they give you 20 mins or so..some say its less, some say its more...I say its less, but it was 29°F up there with the wind playing complete havoc. If I had spread my hands a little further, I could have had the wind beneath my wings to soar in the skies above. I was able to get this interesting shot from the summit with the ice on the rocks. Then we drove around the Kancamagus highway and stopped for shots making stops at all the cascades and falls.

Fall colors on the Mohawk Trail,MA

Though I have lived around the area for quite a while, I have never visited or driven thru 2W...popularly known as the Mohawk Trail. It is a very scenic drive all along the deerfield river with some breathtaking views and gorgeous colors. There is also a beautiful hairpin turn and there is a summit point at this exact place with some amazing views. For miles and miles you can only see mountains with vibrant colors. I made a lot of stops along the way as I was heading up to Vermont, to take some shots. It was a glorious day to be out and I had my lunch by the river. Also stopped at the Bridge of flowers for some flower shots and for some icecream.

Maine...mania...magic yet again

On the way to Bingham, originally uploaded by digijinx.

I simply love to start off my fall with my visit to Maine. This year I thought I wouldn't be able to make it...but I did. Moosehead lake was as beautiful as ever and this time I tried to do the Bingham loop and it was yes very scenic, though I didnt drive through all of it. I was able to do the float plane ride and it was the best thing ever. I have never seen anything as beautiful as Maine and fall colors. Mother nature in her heights of glory...the colors so vibrant. You simply can't resist. I was going crazy clicking as usual. My usual drives to Kokadjo and my usual stops along the way to get my shots.

Day 2 was spent in Acadia, which didnt have much of colors. The little town of Bar Harbor where I stayed was very very pretty. The walk to the waterfront and yes there were some beautiful flowers there and I yes went right out to click them.I had Falafel for lunch and it was quite yummy and made my way to the waterfront with ice cream in was chocolate cappucinno something. It was heavenly!
All through the trip I tortured my friends by stopping at odd places to click my shots and to get them to pose for me. I had an amazing time.
Looking forward to my next trip this fall and every fall.
