Stowe, Vermont, remains one of New England’s most breathtaking towns, regardless of the season. The town boasts a spellbinding blend of ski village charm, old-world Americana, and big-city luxury, masterfully melded with the rolling Green Mountains. As summer gently shifts to autumn, the Green Mountains transform into an eye-popping blend of colors, including a number of vivid hues. Photographers cannot resist the urge to capture the valley’s many shades of amber, marigold, crimson, and kelly green.
