After hearing the term “leaf-peeping” from numerous people, I knew I needed to do it. We happened to be in New England during peak foliage times, so it was divine timing. We stayed at Patti‘s Airbnb in North Sutton, NH and what a great experience. We were greeted with freshly baked apple pie and had the chance to stay in a 150 year old house.
I discovered an amazing iPhone app on New Hampshire foliage. Yes, there are people ridiculously dedicated to this!
Of course I had to download it and see what it said about our region.
We did just what the app said – we travelled along routes 10, 11 and 12 on the way to Woodstock, Vermont, which I read was a great place to visit. Along the way, we had stunning views:
We made it to Woodstock, Vermont, but it was evident the trees were past peak (in leaf peeping terms, of course). There was an apple and craft fair happening that weekend, so the little town was packed! We enjoyed a nice picnic along the river and enjoyed some of the views before continuing on our leaf-peeping journey.
We just so happened to drive past the Quechee River Gorge, so we had to stop and look over the bridge.
Who wouldn’t stop for a view like that! I saw a leaf poster in a gift shop and after snapping a picture, all I kept doing was identifying trees 😀
We continued on and stopped at Mount Sunapee Resort for some more pretty foliage.
The next day, we grabbed coffees at the local corner store (which still sold candies for pennies!) and walked the 3 mile loop around Kezar Lake.
New Hampshire was highly underrated and probably one of my favourite places we’ve been so far (I feel I say that about every place though).
I leave you with a picture of excitement over food:
