Our fall foliage trip this year we decided to go along the southern portion of the Connecticutt River Valley border between Vermont and New Hampshire. After reviewing the foliage guide on-line the foliage should be near peak in this section of New England. The trip through southern New Hampshire to get to the river valley had some nice scenery along the way.
Next up we drive through Surry, New Hampshire.
A historic marker commemorating General John Stark’s Expedition to Bennington is also in Charlestown.
A short detour over the river into Springfield, Vermont brings us to the Eureka Schoolhouse and Baltimore Covered Bridge. The 1968 reconstruction duplicates the 1790 schoolhouse which served Springfield’s first village.
The Baltimore Covered Bridge has been relocated to the same location.
Heading back into New Hampshire Hoyts Landing provides access to the river.
The Cornish-Windsor Covered Bridge is the longest covered bridge in the United States.
We have visited Augustus Saint-Gaudens National Historic Park on many occasions but this is our first trip during foliage season.
The Blow-me-Down Covered Bridge is also in Cornish.
Overall a successful foliage trip not 100% full foliage but very good. We will see if we can get it right next year.
