Vermont Autumn Foliage 2009

I'm happy to report that the fall colors are really starting to come out in Vermont, however it's still rather early and we are not even close to the peak yet, especially at the lower elevations. We are staying at a friends house in Chester, VT and today we went out sightseeing in search of autumn foliage. We selected a very scenic route to drive today, it is a nice gravel road that cuts through the White Rock National Recreation Area in the Green Mountains, Since we are coming from Chester we are driving the road from Weston East through the White Rock National Recreation Area to the town of Mount Tabor. I have uploaded Photos and video clips to give you an idea of how far along the fall colors 2009 are.
