Vermont fall foliage: Looking up, down, and sideways

Columbus Day weekend is traditionally the peak of Vermont's fall foliage. This year didn't disappoint, the colors seem brighter and more vibrant than I recall from recent autumns.

After a damp drizzly morning the weather cleared in the afternoon.

Sun and shadow on the forest floor.

It looks quiet and bucolic but in reality there was near-gridlock on local roads and the Ben & Jerry's Factory (Vermont's #1 tourist attraction, and located about 1/2 mile from where I live) had to hire a sheriff for traffic control on Rt 100. This was not a good day to be running around doing errands in a car.
