NEK of VT Fall Foliage update 9/24/14

The fall foliage is really starting to pop here in the North East Kingdom of Vermont.  I would guess that it will be closer to peek this coming weekend than it will be on the following weekend.  Even the lower elevations are starting to get some good color. Today I headed out to the Lewis pond Overlook which is located in the Silvio O. Conte National Fish and Wildlife Refuge Nulhegan Basin. I accessed the area off from Henshaw Rd, in Island Pond.

Here is a time-lapse video of the ride out to the overlook with the Gopro mounted to the dash of the car. The camera took a photo every 2 seconds. The images were then edited together in the free software provided by GoPro. I slowed it down from the last one i posted the other day. Hopefully it will give you a better idea as to how the foliage is doing in the area. The video starts off on Rte 105 in Island Pond and ends at the parking area for the overlook.
