When Vermont received its name, I don’t believe it was in October. The green (vert) mountain (mont) state shows its true colors as the air cools. Beautiful and brilliant colors. And each fall many travelers take a pilgrimage to visit this part of New England. One year, I was one of them.
On a trip to Manchester, I found myself enjoying a fall day at the Equinox Resort. The historic property found in the book 1,000 Places to See Before You Die, provides more than comfort from the chill autumn brings to the state. It provides the perfect place for an afternoon hike to view one of Mother Nature’s masterpieces, her fall colors.
Here are a few pictures from my hike. The first is along the trail. The sun beams through the cover and illuminates the forest.
After a small climb, you get the chance to see the view from above and witness the green mountains of Vermont turn to brilliant yellows, oranges, and red.
Then on the hike back, you can walk by a small Lake and enjoy the reflection of the majesty on the clear water.
Vermont is certainly not the only place to find the beauty of Autumn, but its fame is well deserved.
Stay adventurous, Craig
