My wife and I are currently on holiday from Sydney Australia, visiting my 
sister in Saratoga NY. Yesterday we returned from a trip from Saratoga through 
southern Vermont to Maine at Kennybunkport, up the coast to Barr Harbour and 
Acadia then up and back through Bangor accross Maine & north New Hampshire to 
Montpelier in Vermont, then back down the Hudson valley to Saratoga.

While we really enjoyed Acadia, I think it deserves at least two or three days 
on its own - including the rest of Desert Island. If ten days is all you have, 
and you dont want to spend it all on the road driving, I suggest you leave out 
Maine and New Hampshire for another holiday. Head for Montpelier, which is a 
very picturesque city, and then zig zag back south including the Adirondacs & 
Hudson Valley as well as southern Vermont. The fall colours were very strong 
here, probably because of the poor soil. In a couple of weeks the 'Leaf 
Peepers' will be up here in the Adirondacs, from New York city, in thier 
coaches and Winnibagos, but in Vermont the colour is already here. You should 
also check out the 'Leaf Peeper' website, which is at

I need advice from fellow list members.  I'm considering a lengthy fall
foliage car trip, but have no idea really where to go, when to go, where to
stay, good photo opportunity locations.

Well, you get the drift.

My plan is to head north towards New England early (which I suspect is
pretty soon) and then spend 10 days or so working my way south from 'great
location' to 'great location'.

It's those great locations with which I need help.

I don't think I'll go as far north as main (I may be too late anyway), but
certainly Mass, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, New York,
Virginia and the Carolinas are all doable.

The more suggestions the better.  I'm going to try to put a route and timing

Then head out!

It may all fall apart, but I hope not.  It would be a lot of fun.

Thanks in advance.
