This is what we saw looking across towards NH today and Franconia Notch.
I got your PM too. Thanks a lot! Let me get your help here if you don't mind so others may benefit from your information. We are flying into Boston on Wednesday. Our initial plan is go to White Mountain, explore Kancamagus Hwy, then Franconia Notch, and spend Thursday night at Lyndonville. We have already booked one night at Wild Flower Inn at Lyndonville that is non refundable, so we have committed to Lyndonville. But we can visit any anywhere during the day for color, especially on Friday. We are flying out of Boston on Saturday around noon. So I hope on Friday we find a place no more than 3 hours drive from Logan airport. That's why I mentioned Green Mountain.

Morning Jeff & campingbaba ~ As you noticed, campingbaba mentioned he had just stayed in North Conway, NH and Scarborough, (Maine?) for the past 5 days and color was at it's peak. For us, that is very understandable as the world seems to change just on the other side of the 'hill' as we travel south or southwest. The Kangamangus, Mount Washington and all the scenic areas read about are in New Hampshire. As you travel from Boston on Interstate 93 north, you will be coming thru a lot of color as you approach Franconia Notch State Park. Keep an eye on the road signs and your map as you can alternate your travel very easily to see many things. I-93, I-89 and I-91 are the only interstates. Lyndonville is just north of St. Johnsbury on I-91 north. Most of VT & NH State Routes and side roads were and still are main traveled since most areas can't be reached directly from the interstates. Be aware that these side roads and 2 lane State Routes are also traveled by ALL vehicular traffic, from farm tractors to loaded logging semi's & 18 wheelers.
Temp. dropped to 27*F here last night, and as I mentioned earlier.. our colors north of Franconia Notch and east of Montpelier are just about all on the ground with a few good spots left. Also mentioned in your PM, there isn't a Green Mountain or White Mountain .. those are names of the mountain ranges in VT & NH. The Presidential Range is another area of which Mt. Washington is part of. Hope you manage to enjoy your brief visit and get to see as much as possible. (Don't forget a good jacket as the temp drops after sunset). The last photo I posted was looking southwest from Littleton, NH which is north of Franconia Notch right off I-93.

Looks like we're gonna be foliage chasers.
According to Vermont Fall Foliage Scenic Drives, Sightseeing Tours, their best bets as of a few days ago:
- Northeast Kingdom Byway from St. Johnsbury to Newport and Jay.
- Route 242 from Montgomery to Jay.
- Route 302 through Orange, Groton & Ryegate.
- The Gap Roads: Routes 4, 17, 125 and 73 west from Route 100.
- Route 2 north of Montpelier.
- Route 100 through south-central Vermont.
- Route 9 from Brattleboro to Bennington.

I wonder if south Vermont will be in peak or over later this week?

If you're going to attempt to 'chase the colors', I wouldn't waste time headed toward Newport (toward Canada). Try RT2 toward Montpelier, stay along the western side of VT toward Bennington (will be south but higher elevation), then back down toward Brattleboro. This way would be a 'loop'. Just sayin' ~ the vacation is yours to enjoy and hope you do.

The old Vermonters have a saying ~ "Ya can't get theya from heeya". (translated - you can't get there from here)
Meaning ~ no direct route, always a round-about journey.

Other than riding the bike with the DW, this is by far my most favorite time of the year. Nice day temps and most of the bugs are gone. Made the trip down to Groton, CT last Saturday, your colors were just starting.
