Vermont in 60 hours (we missed peak foliage but that's OK)

Over happy hour one day last summer, we hatched a plan for a quick trip to Vermont to see the Fall Foliage with friends. We missed peak by about five days. It was cold and snowing when we arrived. We did visit Hill Farmstead.

The next day was sunny and warmer. We hiked up Owl's Head Mountain.

We received an invite to attend a bonfire at the Black Barn Farm in Bolton. They have a bridge that crosses their waterfall to access the acreage on the other side. You can see the barn (home) on the top left of the pic below.

It's a good view from a clearing on the other side. Perfect weather for a fire.

Connie even fed the fire.

We all wished we had more time to spend at Foam. We had a flight to catch.  

 

I was fortunate to get back to Austin to mild temps and blue skies.
