Hi. With the Fall winding down (especially in Vermont) wanted to share more pictures from the Autumn editions (of the magazine) I originally had in my collection.
Taking Aaron to the Top
A story of a Dad taking his dog and son to the top of a mountain, with a route that apparently, was harder to find than expected.
The First Branch of the White River
Some nice views of the area surrounding a river.
All Aboard the Foliage Train
Scenes of a seasonal tourist train. Probably a very nice ride…
A Different Perspective
A scenic view from “above” the Fall Foliage.
A nice montage of Fall Foliage pictures.
Leave the Leaves Alone
A humorous discussion on all the “to do” about leaves…
The Road to Lake <I can’t pronounce it>
One of my favorite articles in this edition is a story of researching and finding the remains of an old (1800s) road. I’ve always been interested in old roads and this one fit the bill…
A story of a photographer’s long day of driving, looking for the perfect Fall scenes. I liked the one below the best…
Light in Autumn
A typical but nice selection of Fall color scenes.
A discussion on the state’s Wilderness Areas. A few nice pictures are included.
A nice story about an elderly couple who ran a hillside campground.
There won’t be many pictures from this edition/year as most articles did not have pictures like previous editions.
Private View – Late Fall
This was a nice, short article with black and white picture, discussing the end of the Autumn season.
Saving Vermont’s Farms
I read this once, and recall the discussion on trying to help farmers keep their land and farms going. One of the points was, Vermont’s big industry was tourism, and the farmland with woods, hills, etc. was an important part of that.
Being from Kansas, I argue farms have a far greater importance than tourism…
The annual article showcasing the Fall colors. This one emphasizes the morning fog that occurs each Autumn.
History on the Hoof
This article described a multi-day walk by cadets at the military school – Norwich University, to the historic Fort Ticonderoga in New York state. It was a
re-creation of a similar walk made by cadets who attended the school in 1840.
This article described the life of the great poet, and how he came about to write one of the few poems I will read – 1922’s “Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening”.
Opening Day of Deer Season
Autumn – The Sweet Tug of Necessity
An article that shows Autumn’s beauty while mentioning the preparations required for the coming Winter.
Since several articles/pictures in this edition were related to the Long Trail, I felt a brief description was in order…
Started in 1910, and completed in 1930, this is the oldest long-distance hiking trail in the country.
This trail runs 272 miles north and south, from the Massachusetts border in the south, to the Canadian border in the north. It is generally along the spine of the Green Mountains in Vermont. The first 100 miles from the south coincide with the Appalachian Trail (AT). At that point, the AT turns east and goes 150 miles to the New Hampshire border.

Remembering the Mountains
This was an enjoyable story to read (for me), since it was about a hike a young man (16) took in 1937 on the Long Trail.
The Long Trail Today
An update to the condition and plans for the trail.
Getting in Gear
Another in the “genre” of stories about the transition and anticipation from Fall to Winter.
