Foliage tour to Vermont from Killington to Montpellier

October 2002

The best way to visit Vermont during the fall foliage, is to rent a car and drive along the many countryside roads. For this first day tour, I will drive from Killington to Montpellier, discovering beautiful autumn landscapes and picturesque towns.

Today I will drive north to Montpelier on routes 12 / 12A and then back to Killington on route 100. I'll also take several secondary roads for additional scenes. The above picture has been taken close to the Mountain Meadows Lodge

Autumn in Vermont Towns and villages on routes 12 and 12A. The colors of the homes contrasting with the leaves create a lot of photo opportunities and scenes which are impossible to forget. The trees in autumn are really beautiful.
