Brattleboro, Vermont -- PEAK Fall Colors Edition

Not to get crazy in the title, but the fall foliage colors on display here were maybe the best I've seen... intense oranges and yellows in every direction.

So on Sunday my lady and I made a day trip up to my childhood hometown (lived there from ages 1-7) of Brattleboro, Vermont, a town that oozes New England charm from every corner and is known as a little hippy haven in the southeastern corner of Vermont, just across the Connecticut River from New Hampshire and about five miles from the border with Massachusetts.

Brattleboro has a very dense little downtown hemmed in by water and hills that's packed with shops, bookstores and restaurants, and it always finds a way to surprise me, this time in the form of all the traffic and people there to see the colors just like we were (plus it was a holiday weekend). I've never seen my little town so absolutely bursting with traffic, and although it was a bit chaotic, I'd certainly take that over finding it desolate and ignored--I didn't see even one retail vacancy in all of downtown.

So here we go, driving though central MA









And now in town





Quick trip across the bridge to New Hampshire, just once this Amtrak train moves...









The Connecticut River



And back into town































Mount Wantastiquet frames the view to the east







And now we move to the west side of town, looking back towards Wantastiquet



Things get VERY leafy around here











This is easily one of the best scenes I've ever seen





ME WANT LIVE HERE





















And then my camera battery died and my backup battery was dead too oops

I hope you enjoyed this little tour! I know I sure did

Beautiful collection of shots. They remind me of Seattle in the Fall, which is my favorite time of the year there (I know people don't associate Fall colors with the PNW, but it's actually incredibly vibrant there) and boy, I do miss this given I now live in Southern California where everything is brown 8 months out of the year.

My Old Boss from Toshiba lives there. If you see a elderly Japanese man riding a old Bridgestone touring bike around town, say hello to Toshi for me. Very cool post. Thanks. There is a road bike route from Keene to Brattleboro called Route 9 The Hardway. The descent into Brattleboro was crazy.

Very picturesque. Nothing says "Vermont" like fall colors and sugarhouses.

Nice pictures! Fall in New England is just amazing. I drove from Boston up through NH and VT going to Ottawa last weekend and even as far north as Ottawa the colors were incredible.

I’d presume Ottawa peaks later than mid New England. What’s the coverage like around Ottawa second week of October?
