The fall foliage of late September and early October brings leaf peepers to the roads of New England. These curious folks, whether driving themselves along the winding roads of the Green Mountains or riding a tour bus through the Berkshires, are looking for colorful leaves and maybe some New England products for home. The orange sugar maples, yellow birches and maroon oak trees provided a very nice show in Weston Vermont today. This store had pumpkins and other interesting items for sale.
Although outlet stores have recently invaded the bucolic New England landscape, there are still plenty of roadside farm stands and little stores that sell local produce, crafts and antiques. Maple syrup and Vermont cheese are popular with tourists and local folks year-round. Hay bales and pumpkins are very popular this time of year.
This particular store in Weston VT is still a local establishment, but it has grown considerably over the decades. With internet and catalog sales, they aren't really a local road-side store anymore, but they still maintain a New England theme. The store did such a nice job getting into the rustic Vermont-in the fall spirit with their old truck, pumpkins, hay bales and hammocks that I though a gigapan was needed to capture the scene. So here it is, complete with some leaf peepers.
