An American Road Trip to New England

The four of us, piling into our SUV, craving the magic of Fall and the beauty of #Autumn colors, agreed that New England was the place to go. It was a 6 hour ride for us, but as friends for many (many) many years ; ) we knew it would be a blast no matter what. According to all sources, it was “PEAK” time to head up there, which was mid October, and did we ever time it right. I have headed out in the past where we hoped for the same, but was disappointed. Not this time. We chose to make our first stop in Burlington, VT before heading to #Stowe. Burlington is a beautiful town, located 45 miles south of the #Canada–United States border and 94 miles south of #Montreal. Its the perfect blend of old New England charm, arts, culture and nature. During our time there it was bustling with “leaf peepers” who come to view the vibrant autumn colors as well. Its no secret and every year the attraction to VT doesn’t disappoint at all. (Its our 4th year in a row.) We had fun walking along the 4 block, brick tiled, smoke free environment. We came across the spectacular waterfront of Lake Champlain and grabbed a picnic table and had lunch, and a few cold beers! The second day we were in the quaint little village of Stowe. Being avid skiers, were here mostly in the winter, where it truly transforms into a Winter wonderland. But in October, its still a wonderful, picturesque town to hike and take in Mother Natures beauty. We walked for hours and came across one of the most beautiful Waterfalls I have ever seen, Honey Hollow Falls. What I loved about this particular Falls is that its not well known and we practically had the Falls to ourselves. Not very crowded at all. We also had a treat at the Stowe #Theater Guild. They really did a great job. It was a Perfect night out to complement our day in Stowe. As we enter into the Holiday Season of 2016, and prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving/Christmas with our loved ones, in the back of my mind I’m already thinking about next Fall, 2017, mainly because its my favorite time of year, and am sooo looking forward to my next Fall #adventure with my “crew”. Hopefully I gave you all a few ideas. I love hearing from other Travelers as well on personal notes along with their experiences. Its more personal & insightful with small hidden treasures! Love and Peace to all!

Beautiful Waterfalls

Growing up on the East Coast (Long Island, NY), I long for the Weekend Getaways with my parents to “Upstate” NY. We had picnics along the Delaware Water gap, sang songs, visited my parents friends, ect. I treasured those weekends and passed along the tradition with my own children. When my 3 boys were 12, 7 & 6 (today 30, 26 & 25) we took a road trip, one of many, to Niagara Falls, and to this day we still talk about “The Falls” Ithaca Falls was one of the most recent. I didnt even know it was in existence, until I visited a friend who lived in Ithaca a few years back & went on a hike. There’s just a magical/mysterious beauty that, I find at least, in stumbling along Waterfalls. So when I cane across this Article, not only was I anxious to read it, Id like to share it with others. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.

2016 Fall Equinox

At 10:21am tomorrow, September 22, 2016, is the Fall Equinox. I describe it as when there is a shift from warm, beautiful summer days to cozy fall. There are only two times of the year when the Earth’s axis is tilted neither toward nor away from the sun. March 19th (Vernal Equinox – the first day of Spring) and September 22nd, (Autumnal Equinox – the first day of fall). We’re going to be enjoying the cooler days of autumn, while, south of the equator, spring is about to begin.

The word Equinoz is from the Latin aequinoctium, aequus (equal) and nox (genitive noctis) (night).
