    Hello everyone!

    I spend most of my time in the women's forum but felt that this would be a better place for my latest interest.

    I hope to someday move to Vermont because it is absolutely beautiful. I fell in love [​IMG] with the area the first time I saw Beetlejuice and Funny Farm both of which I mostly watched for the scenery. I later found out they were both filmed in Vermont.

    I've never been there personally but have really enjoyed all the studies I've done and the pictures I've seen about the area.

    Does anyone live in Vermont or in the New England States area? Would you care to share some of the beauty with those of us less fortunate? Would like to hear what you think about it even if you've only visited there...

    I saw this earlier, but I am not from there, so can't offer ya any ideas. :confused: I can do some wishful thinking! ;) My whole life, I've wanted to travel the Eastern Seaboard in the Fall, see the colors, stop at the special places...eat their foods...especially Vermont. [​IMG]

    I like to read anything from there & I've got a few little catalogs to help me in my daydreaming. [​IMG]

    I went to college (the first go 'round) in the Shenandoah Valley. It was lovely. I'm from central Virginia, so it was always a fairly short distance to Skyline Drive. My family used to go at least once a year, stopping for apple cider and to look in all the little shops off the road.

    Now I live in MD (DC metro), and although it's still a short drive, the infamous "they" are saying that the colors are likely going to be less bright, and even less prevalent, since the drought has caused many of the leaves to fall off early, without any change. :(

    All I know for sure is that I simply must get my hands on some maple sugar candy! That says "autumn" in a slurry of sweet maple-ly goodness!

    I live in Massachusetts, and have hiked in all the New England states. Vermont has the Green Mountains, and New Hampshire the White Mts. Maine is mostly flat, but there's a big Mountain in Baxter St Park, I'll be hiking the 1st week of October.

    But.......for hiking in the fall, you can't beat the Adirondaks in upstate New York.
