Re: Growth as a Photographer

I usually end up in the foliage forum, even though my primary interest is photography. I'll have to post here more often.

Re: Differences between this forum and Social Media

I never created a Facebook account for the very reasons you've mentioned. Plus I don't like the way Zuckerberg does business. I look forward to this forum every fall. So fun to chat with everyone and hear about their travels. Plus, the intel on what looks good at the moment can't be beat.

Re: Peak colors in NH especially the White Mountains better than Vermont

I agree Krishna, the White Mountains were much better, they usually are. Maine has also been great. I was in Maine today and came back through Gorham again, but as opposed to Friday, I did see quite a bit of leaf drop on some mountainsides. I'd say 30% or so. Maine hasn't had much leaf drop. Bethel ...

OFF TOPIC: White Mountains - 10/11/19

NH is bursting with color. I took Rt. 4 east to 118 North through Enfield and Canaan. 118 has a lot of color. If you hiked Mt. Cardigan you'd have one heckuva view. Definitely peak on the mountains. From there I did a turn west on Rt. 112 (The Kanc) and visited Beaver Pond, then started east on 112....

Re: Sunday 10/6/2019 foliage report

Mt. Tabor is always a favorite of mine, it is along Rt. 7. I may try that myself this weekend.

Yeah, looks a bit past. White Mountains might still be good for this weekend.

Re: Peak Color Route 2 Corridor!

I got some good pics at Marshfield Pond last year so I didn't stop. Plus today was just a boring sky day, not one for interesting photos. I don't know yet what I'll do before the rain comes tomorrow. I'm kind of worn out after the last two days. One shot I like to get is one of the tree-lined Darlin...

Re: Dog Mountain, St. Johnsbury

I wish I had known about that sooner, I'd have gone. What fun those doggies must have had. I looked at the pics from the previous dog parties at the link you posted. I may have to check that out next year.

Re: SAT 10-5 Foliage Report

I was mostly disappointed today as well. I saw a lot of leaf drop. I took 302 west to 232 North and most of the color looked a bit past it. There was some over by Kettle Pond that looked to be ok. I then went up Rt. 2 east and stopped a Molly's Pond. I found a bit of good color there. Then back onto...

Kanc Report

I was on part of the Kanc today, from 93 eastward. I'd say it's near peak. Color was great until Rocky Gorge, from there eastward it was really green, just a few trees here and there had turned. I went to the Fryeburg Fair in Maine to shoot the harness racing and Fryeburg was very green as well. I w...

Re: Peak Color Route 2 Corridor!

I will add that RT 2 is also good between Rt 115 in NH and Bethel, ME. Bethel was mostly green. Unreal, because Gilead, the town before it on Rt. 2 was exploding with color. My guess is you could probably take Rt. 2 from VT all the way to ME and have great color.

Re: Peak Color!

Krishna, maybe southeastern VT or in the Upper Valley, around Hartford. Though I think Burlington tends to turn later, so that might be a good spot to try.

Re: Peak Color!

Kent Pond and Colton Pond are popular spots along Rt 100, north of Rt 4 and not far from Rt 4. Not far from there is Chittenden Reservoir and Leffert's Pond. Oh, also Thundering Brook Rd. There is a stream that runs along there, lots of spots with small waterfalls, then at the end of the road (farth...
