Mother Nature’s Annual Show of Color
As summer fun winds down, and the temperatures as well as the number of daylight hours begin to decrease, there’s something magical happening. The leaves of deciduous trees in Vermont change to vibrant shades of red, orange and gold for a spectacular annual show. Whether you view it through the windows of your car, pedaling on one of the area’s bike paths or on the mountain bike trails, hiking through the woods, paddling on a quiet pond, or boating on one of the larger lakes, this display is available to everyone.
