Autumn in New England


New England is beautiful, especially from now into late October. Our location in eastern Upstate NY is considered technically part of New England and if you were to travel from Rhode Island north up through Conn., Mass., New Hampshire, Vermont and eventually enter NY you'd see some of the most incredible landscape that North America has to offer. We who live in this region take it for granted, but "Leaf Peepers" travel from miles away to see this countryside in the Fall and bring millions of dollars a year into our tourism industry. Pattyjo and I are taking a road trip this weekend, not so much as tourist's, but en route to NHIS. From our house we take State Rt. 4 east into Rutland Vt. and continue on across the state of Vt. to White River Junction where we'll enter New Hampshire. That's less than 2 hours, then head south on I-89 towards Concord, NH and turn north onto I-93 which will lead to Loudon. The whole trip is just over 3 hours. It offers some of the most beautiful scenery in New England and our final destination... The Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire International Speedway.
