I have never been to New England (Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Maine) before so of course the best time of year was chosen – fall. New England is famous for its fall foliage season. I went with a friend (Torben) who also likes photography much on this photo-roadtrip. We got cheap flights with LH from Friedrichshafen via Frankfurt to New York. In New York we only spent one full day and met Bill (from my Nepal trip) and Denis and Nata (from University times). Due to the Government shutdown quite a few things were closed, but nothing did interfere with our plans. With a rental car (Chevy SUV) we drove Northwards into the Green Mountains. Sadly the weather turned bad. Also the next days in the White Mountains we were not lucky. The day we were leaving the White Mountains the weather turned sunny and we had to take all our pictures in one day. What a rush ;). The fall colors only come out with the deep blue sky. We ended up at Mt. Washington (we were the last car allowed up) at almost sunset. And a 5hrs drive to Acadia NP ahead…
Acadia Nationalpark was closed due to the shutdown, but we did find our own ways and hiked a lot. Weather (and Nationalpark) was great. On Highway 1 we drove down the cost to Boston and spent 2 nights there. In Boston we followed the Liberty Trail along all the sights (all museums were closed). Back in New York we did spend the night at the Roosevelt Hotel (a nice change to the motels we had before). Highlight in my eyes was the Top of the Rock. We went in the morning and evening (just at nighfall).
Even with the weather not perfect it was a great trip. Green and White Mountains are fantastic for fall foliage. Just the weather has to be good next time.
