Vermont's Green Mountain National Forest

Today we drove scenic Kelley Stand Rd. in the Green Mountain National Forest from East Arlington to West Wardsboro, VT.

Not long after the pavement ended and the road turned to gravel we pulled over to shoot pictures of the creek.

This is classic Vermont scenery looking up the creek. In another couple of weeks these trees will be in full fall colors.

Warning: The Kelley Stand Road is not maintained in the winter months.

Autumn has arrived in Vermont. Temps are starting to dip down at night especially in the higher elevations. Early Vermont fall colors in the Green Mountain National Forest are underway. Here's a photo of the beginning of the fall foliage season in Vermont.

There were definitely some trees changing to autumn colors.

Along the Stratton Arlington Road aka Kelley Stand Rd. is the spot in which Daniel Webster addressed 15,000 people in July 1840.

Ripe Thimble Berries right along Kelley Stand Road.

Here's Jack showing his delicious Thimble Berry discovery.

Thimble Berries are mmm mmm good to eat!

Kelley Stand Rd. is a nice smooth gravel road. In the summer during good weather it is an easy drive, although I wouldn't recommend it for any vehicle with especially low clearance.
