Re: HELP! We are here...color is not

I am sympathetic with those who are not finding the color they expect, although my experience at leaf hunting here is that October 15 is late in the leaf season more often than you might think, something to keep in mind in planning for the future. Notwithstanding this, there is still good color, you...

Woodstock/Pomfret

Color in this area is yellow to orange with some green still mixed in. Some brighter colors on the back roads in Pomfret and Barnard, some reds even, which are not common here in any year. Try Allen Hill Rd. in Pomfret/Barnard. Further ripening of color here may be interrupted by leaf drop, which ha...

Re: Northeast Kingdom Update 10/5

Ed Great to meet you. Looks like you got some good shots. After Marshfield I headed up into the NEK, 114, 105, a lot of back roads. Stupendous color. I also stopped at Job's Pond around 930. The color was the best I have seen there, and I have seen it many times since 2001. What do you say about Noy...

Re: NEK Report 10/3

that barn is a crazy thing. there must be a story why it was built that way, but i cant imagine what it is. peacham still early, esp by comparison to the colors now in NEK, but everything seems to be changing fast so maybe by sat or sunday peacham will be ready. the "classic" peacham shot ...

Re: Which weekend for Woodstock to Waitsfield?

jack i have not been down to jenne this year--most years this would be too early so i have not bothered yet. in woodstock itself, and out on cloudland, north of woodstock, it is yellow and green still. more yellows have come in during the last day or two, but it has a way to go. jenne and south wood...

Re: Nice color in Pittsburg NH--Google Pittsburg NH Webcams

i agree, a week or so in most areas, i would say. however, unlike last year, things look healthy. Last year the green was a dull matte color. not this time. this looks like a year with good potential if the weather continues in its current trend. people with plans for the NEK for next weekend are li...

Re: Nice color in Pittsburg NH--Google Pittsburg NH Webcams

I was up in northern NH today, including the triangular area bounded by Pittsburg, Colebrook and Stewartstown. This area presently has the best color I have seen by a factor of two or three (in the last three days I have seen most of the NEK, the US 91 corridor, the Kanc, and the Woodstock Pomfret a...

Re: Foliage forecast update

regarding the name "popple dungeon":

popple for poplar and similar types of tree

dungeon for the trees on either side meeting above the road, making it dark.

it is, i think, an old name for this road.

Re: New England trip for my friends with a toddler

i would say, based on my experience during the previous 17 (!) autumns in woodstock, that the color probably will be gone in woodstock by the time of your visit. there may be color still on some back roads out of town, but i would not count on it. color or not, woodstock is an interesting place for ...
