After spending a restful night at my new campsite in the parking lot of a truck mechanic shop, waiting for them to be able to get my motorhome worked into their schedule, I arose bright and early to head west and explore the higher elevations along Route 105. Frustrating as usual was the start of the day as I spent the first 2 hours and 70 miles traveling in dense fog. Finally, as I ascended upward around Jay Peak, I got above the fog and saw some of the first nice color of the day.

What the fog below was concealing.
It seems there is an unwritten law that the brightest foliage is required to always be located behind utility wires. Since the property was posted, I couldn’t walk in any farther to get past the electric lines.
I got off Route 105 and started puttering around the dirt roads once I got out from under the fog.
And this kind of scene was the reward!
An abundance of brilliant colors all throughout this area of northern Vermont.
This area will require a return trip to further explore the backroads to see what kind of gems they might reveal. If the weather holds, I most likely will return tomorrow.
