We are taking a trip to New England in early October.  In fact we will be in Maine driving along the coast and meeting a blogging friend on my birthday.

We then head west through the mountains in New Hampshire, into Vermont and then I think a trip across Lake Champlain into New York, where we may get to meet another longtime blogging friend.

I was delighted today to see that the peak foliage for the areas we will be visiting is in early October!  Right when we will be there!

Do you ever go leaf peeping?


  1. Not so much on the west coast. Oh how I'd love to make the trek cross country!! Enjoy your time Deanna, and think of me. ;)

    Blessings, Debbie

  2. Maine is still on my informal "bucket list" (though I get scared off by the rumors of bumper-to-bumper traffic).

    I hear that Vermont is really getting hammered right now - with more rain on the heels of the hurricane. I wonder how/if this will affect the colors???

    Enjoy the planning AND the trip!

  3. It is a dream of mine to go to the east coast and see the leaves change.! We live in the middle of the desert right now so to see the leaves change we have to drive an hour up a mountain we live by to see them. There is Japanese Maples, some oak and Aspen that put a pretty show. ;o) Here next month we will start going every weekend to see what we can see! ;o)

  4. We used to when we lived in New Jersey. Your trip that you have planned really sounds wonderful!

  5. What fun! I am so happy you get to do this trip.

    We love the leaves here in IL. during the fall; so different from CA.!


    Hi to Sarah!

  6. That was funny. I checked to see whom you might be meeting, pretty certain I knew the answer, and arrived at my post titled "You Guessed Correctly."

    Yes, leaf peeping is sport up heah.

  7. Oh my, Yes, Yes, Yes!!! This is by far my very favorite time of the year!!

  8. We, too, have been talking about our vacation coming in early October. We are excited. It's been way too long since we've had a family vacation. However, we will be heading in the opposite direction to the Ohio/Kentucky area to see the Creation Museum, as you know.

  9. That sounds like so much fun! We love to go leaf looking!

  10. What a great idea. We love fall folliage.

    Darryl and Ruth :)

  11. Oh, Deanna~ I am so envious!!! Have a fabulous time! I wish we could go, but school schedule stops us....someday, hopefully. What a treat to meet some blogging friends. Ever come to So Ca stop and say hi :)
