Sounds a bit like reactions to a 4th of July fireworks show here on the motor coach as we meander around the backroads of New Hampshire and Vermont on our New England Fall Foliage tour. Unfortunately, the sun, which makes the oak, birch and maple leaves look so dramatically bright in blazing reds, yellows and oranges, has been pretty much a no-show. But even though the persistent cover of clouds and showers have been a bit of a disappointment for travelers, these mountains (hills, really) now have a taken on a different kind of splendor; a muted beauty of soft pastels.. pink, lavender and yellows which seem equally satisfying.
We have a great group of vagabonds traveling with us here in the Northeast. We’re all going to have to go on diets by journey’s end.
Next some images from Stockbridge, Massachusetts and a visit to the Norman Rockwell Museum plus an afternoon at the Hancock Shaker Village; two unforgettable experiences.
Wish you were here but it’s going way too fast.
