Break out your scarves, bust out your Halloween decorations, and pop a bottle of cider, because fall foliage season is finally here! Well, in Vermont, at least. If you’re still patiently awaiting changing leaves near you, fear not! Northeast Kingdom Weather has captured some killer drone footage of the changing leaves that everyone can enjoy.

Their Youtube channel, NEK Flyer, has posted a few drone videos of the early colors spreading across the Northeast corner of the state, including this one of the foliage around Little Averill Pond.

The color change is starting to spread to nearby Norton Pond and Lewis Pond as well. Vermont, being so far north, is one of the earliest states to start to experience fall leaves, which start to crop up in mid-September and usually end in mid- to late October.’s fall foliage reports are in full swing, as well. If you can’t wait for fall foliage, Vermont is the perfect destination.

Lewis Pond is located within the Silvio O. Conte National Fish and Wildlife Refuge, which is among the many destinations for those in search of prime Northeast leaf-peeping. Other spots for spying foliage include Smugglers’ Notch, Molly Stark State Park, and the Bennington Battle Monument.

And if you’re wondering when you can expect to start seeing the colors in your own hometown, here’s a handy map that’ll help you figure out when leaf-peeping season starts for you!
