"The first week of October in Vermont is the unbearably beautiful American time and place. Brilliant yellow birch-covered hills slope down to glowing green meadows. Every sugar maple along every country lane combusts in scarlet and gold. The autumn sun brightens the white church steeples in the pretty valley towns. Plump pumpkins appear in orange pyramids outside the crossroads stores, and the smell of wood smoke hangs in the air. The intensity of the season so overpowers the senses that autumn cannot be remembered one year to the next, so its splendor always comes as a shock." Charles Kuralt. I certainly could not say it better. Photo at sunrise 10/1/13 from atop Lynd's Hill Road, Plymouth, VT. Olympus OMD EM-5, m.zuiko [email protected], 1/160s, f5.6, ISO200.

I so agree with Edie on the quote and life of Charles Kuralt. Each Sunday I wished to find a reason to stay home from church so I could watch "Sunday Morning" with Charles Karalt. If this is what he was seeing then it is no wonder he was able to catch the heart of the people he met throughout the country.

Such a lovely picture to go with such poetic words ... Reading the quote, I can almost hear Charles Kuralt's affirming yet soothing voice, and I miss him :)
