The Land of Covered Bridges - Southern Vermont

As most of you know, we spent last week driving through New England peeping some leaves.  It was an amazing week and exactly what we needed.  It was quiet and beautiful.  We had our email notifications turned off and went hours without any cell signal.

We left last Sunday and headed north to Vermont.  We stayed in a quiet little mountain resort at Ascutney.  We stopped at the 100 Mile View at Hogback Mountain.  It was our first real glimpse of what our week would look like.  It was a perfect kick off.

We woke up to a beautiful foggy Autumn morning.  We drove a few miles up the road to Woodstock, VT.  This is a must.  It was beautiful.  We stopped for breakfast and ate next to a few Appalachian Trail hikers.  I enjoyed a toasted bagel with slices of apple and cheddar cheese on top - SO GOOD.  We wondered through town and over a few covered bridges taking in this perfect little New England town.

Our last stop before heading into the big mountains was the town of Redbud.  I know that isn't the real name of the town, but if you are a Chevy Chase fan, then you have seen Funny Farm.  We found ourselves the town that some of the town shots were filmed.

From there, we headed straight up Route 100 to our next destination.  We loved Vermont in February when we went to Smuggler's Notch, but it was even more beautiful in the fall.

I'll be back with more pictures soon - maybe tomorrow.  Have you ever been leaf peeping?


  1. I'm so jealous - I've always wanted to visit Vermont in the fall, and your pictures prove why - it's gorgeous!

  2. Gorgeous! I love that you had no cell signal -- I know that's usually associated with frustration, but it just allows you to be FREE!

  3. Well now I want to go leaf peeping. Also, I need that Sunday Funday shirt.

  4. Amazing photos. I'm so glad you guys did this!

  5. so pretty!! vermont in the fall is definitely going on my bucket list.

  6. Sooo beautiful! What a great weekend escape!

  7. I'm living vicariously through you and Justin. How freaking beautiful! Looooove the photos, you're getting really great with the camera!

  8. I love Vermont - I was just in Bennington and Manchester last weekend!

    I desperately want to run into some hikers from the Appalachian Trail, so I can ask them ~1,000 questions.


Thanks for reading my ramblings. It makes my heart happy.
