Vermont Foliage

Foliage in Lamoille County (North Central - includes, Stowe, Morrisville, Johnson; approx 45 minutes east and a bit north of Burlington) is just past its peak color. Some sugar maples are still turning a bright yellow, although early coloring trees are starting to lose their leaves. The summer's generous and consistent rainfall left the forests very healthy, and this has been an exceptionally colorful year. An early hard freeze 2 weeks ago did not affect the trees. The reds were abundant and brilliant. Yellows and oranges developed nicely.

Weather today is warm and sunny; in some locations, it may even set records for warmth on this date. Snowfall on the mountain tops has mostly melted.
