Early color change here in Enfield with a few Sugar Maples changing color. Unfortunately it's mostly just to this drab orange color:

Loafer have you been to the NW corner yet and the Salisbury twin lakes? Higher elevation, more color popping out than around here. Barkhamsted Reservoir? Fisher Pond near Under Mountain Road (route 41), Wood Creek Pond paralleling 272 south out of Norfolk usually has nice early color. I'll be back up in the NW hill towns as soon as I leave Vermont. I'm out at Barkhamsted a lot but always seem to miss the peak there!

Although we had 84 here yesterday with tropical humidity (ugh), today is a glorious fall day with light breezes and blue skies! Tremendous feel! Blissful! This weekend should provide a nice start to our autumn season. Enjoy! :D

Below is the first foliage report from the state of New Hampshire posted yesterday on the Great North Woods. This should have conditions similar to the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. This cool weather finally seems to be getting things started....

"Wednesday, September 26, 2018 The foliage season is just starting to get underway in the Great North Woods region. Here and there you'll spot a random tree fully decked out in red and yellow, but for the most part the colors are just now beginning to develop. Based on our leaf peeper's reports, your best bet for a fall drive right now is heading north from Berlin up through Milan towards Errol on Route 16, where color change is at about 30-40%. Color has also started to shift along route 2 between Gorham and Jefferson, as well as on Route 3 heading north from Lancaster. The colors aren't super vibrant yet, but with chilly temperatures forecasted for nights this week, things should start to develop rapidly in this region. Percentage Changed: 30-40%" - State of New Hampshire Foliage Report

Loafer: I just got back from Granby. Trees really starting to turn over with reds and oranges. Route 187 to 20 and 189. Will be excellent around Columbus Day Weekend...……….. CT
