Caledonia, Essex and Orleans counties in northeastern Vermont are known as the Northeast Kingdom, an affectionate term coined by former governor George Aiken in 1949, referring to the area's natural beauty.
A rugged region of rolling hills, beautiful ponds, pristine forests and hardy people, the Northeast Kingdom is a favorite destination for leaf-peepers. Based on reports from locals that it was the best season for color in years, I set out in early October to see for myself. Despite somewhat uncooperative weather, I was not disappointed, and I don't think you will be either.
