Leaf Peeping in Vermont

Emma and I are having the BEST time visiting the beautiful state of Vermont. It’s our first time here and we’re having a blast leaf peeping. We’ve been driving all over the state today… (which is not hard while you’re here because it’s just 3 hours from the north end to the south end of the state). For those who are unfamiliar with VT, this state is populated by only 600,000 people…you can imagine what our scenic drives have looked like. Just pure New England beauty at it’s finest! Emma couldn’t believe how gorgeous the mountains looked – it felt like we stepped back in time to the 1800s. Enjoy some of our leaf peeping in Vermont photos below.

It is peak fall foliage right now and the trees are at their prime. All day long we spotted leaves full of reds, oranges, yellows, and greens.
