The last of the Autumn foliage

We are well into stick season in Central Vermont. However as I travel into the valley areas, particularly in the western part of the state, I'm still finding remnants of the Fall colors. For the most part though, the hills have transformed to umber, dappled with dark green, burnt orange and occasional splashes of brilliant gold., maybe Waterville

At this stage, choosing which towns to visit is a bit like throwing darts at a map. To get the most out of the Fall foliage season, I decide to go north early on, moving south as the foliage fades. Today, I decided to start out in Johnson.
