Vermont officials are rushing to the defense of one of the state’s most cherished icons, fall foliage, after an Arizona magazine claimed the fall colors in the Grand Canyon state are better than the Green Mountains after they have turned red, gold and orange. The cover of the October edition of the magazine Arizona Highways shows a picturesque scene of a bucolic waterfall surrounded by golden foliage while carrying the headline “Autumn in Arizona & Why it’s better than it is in Vermont.” (AP Photo/Toby Talbot, File)
