Pure gold in Vermont and Michigan

October 19, 2003

I always pooh-poohed the beauty of the leaves turning in New England. After seeing the photos with "Striking Gold in Vermont" [Oct. 5], I'm a believer. My only question now: When will the jigsaw puzzles be published?

How can an article on Vermont foliage ignore the state's glorious Northeast Kingdom? My husband and I agree that the sight of the sheer slopes of Mt. Pisgah and Mt. Hor on fire with autumn color, cascading into opposing sides of beautiful Lake Willoughby, can't be matched. A hike up Mt. Pisgah provides vistas of the lake and the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

You also left out Route 125 connecting Route 7 to Route 100. Robert Frost is memorialized at the Robert Frost Trail. The path leads visitors through a lovely meadow, and his beautiful poetry is posted along the way. The day we visited was magical. We had foliage, Frost and the first snow of the season.

Beats me why people think it is necessary to go clear to New England for fall color when you can get just as much color in Michigan and Wisconsin. We are Michigan natives who have lived in California for 45 years but have been back to Michigan for the fall color several times. Why join the leaf crawlers along highways in New England when you can really enjoy the less-crowded roads in Michigan and Wisconsin? The valley of the Jordan River in Charlevoix and Antrim counties should be in full color right now.
