Every year around this time, my wife and I anxiously watch the fall foliage reports to find the right weekend to venture up north to photograph the changing seasons in the Northeast. Even though rain was in the forecast this past weekend, we decided to venture on our annual trip anyway. Luckily, the rain held off in the locations we managed to find lots of color. On this trip we drove north from Northern New Jersey to Bridgewater, New York then east through Albany, crossing the border into Bennington, Vermont and ending our trip at the Mount Snow Ski Resort.

According to many of the locals we spoke to, the colors were changing really fast. Between now and next week is probably your best viewing opportunity in central New York, southern Vermont, Massachusetts and Connecticut. You can see the latest fall foliage map on the Weather Channel.
