Autumn in Vermont

During the summer, Greg took me to his Vermont home and it was absolutely beautiful. But I knew it would be even better in the fall, so Greg promised he’d take me back when the trees were painted in gorgeous orange, red and yellow tones. And lucky for me he kept that promise!

We road tripped to Vermont last weekend, and each turn of the road became prettier than the last as we soaked in the stunning changing trees.

Vermont has such quaint towns that in the fall are covered in pumpkins and autumn leaves.

And the towns aren’t the only things that are covered! Vermont has the cutest covered bridges too.

Because we both love October, we decided to be super “basic” and buy apple cider and apple cider donuts and wander around a local pumpkin patch.

On our first full day, we took advantage of the sunshine to go hiking at Quechee Gorge.

Many of the trees by the gorge hadn’t quite changed yet, but it was beautiful nonetheless.

The next morning we woke up to a stunning mist that had settled over the trees, making the fall colors more vibrant against the grey sky. I couldn’t help but think of Washington Irving’s words:

“A drowsy, dreamy influence seems to hang over the land, and to pervade the very atmosphere.”

We wanted to take advantage of every available moment outdoors despite the less-than-perfect weather, so we put on our matching shirts (nope, not kidding) and headed out to explore.

That is until it really started raining, and we decided to head home and spend the afternoon in his jacuzzi. That still counts as being outdoors, right?!

The next day we reluctantly packed our bags, grabbing Vermont maple syrup and maple creemee ice cream cones before we went.

And we may have picked up a few other fall essentials!
