Re: Connecticut Fall Foliage 2020

Has anyone been through MA? Just wondering how it's looking there. I've been wanting to go to Rock House Reservation for a while, but want to go when the color is good.

Re: Cloudland - Woodstock area Sept 23

I went to Cloudland Road and the Woodstock/Barnard/Bridgwater area today and found some nice color. 100A was very good as was 100 south from the 100A junction. I was in Bellows Falls on Monday and it wasn't very good, still a lot of green, other trees past. So, I wasn't expecting much and was very p...

The color still looks good up there, I am surprised.

Re: When to See the Full Harvest Moon in Vermont! Where will you be?

They said on WMUR last night that there hasn't been a full moon on Halloween since the 1930s. That was surprising.

Re: Central/Southern Vermont 10-1-20

I went to the White Mountains yesterday and have a similar story. The only mountains that still looked decent were Mt. Washington & Cannon Mountain. Crawford Notch was still decent color. Most of the rest had quite a bit of leaf drop or turned brown. I tried Campton, NH, too, but the mountains/hills...

Re: Color Popping in NH

I hiked Ascutney 3 weeks ago and did the fire tower, it was quite a view. There is also a great view from the hang glider platform that we went to after the tower. A friend sent me a photo of Ascutney last night. It still looks pretty green. I had back surgery 2 weeks ago, so hiking to the fire towe...

Color Popping in NH

In Lebanon we are still pretty green, but geez like in the last day or two Enfield and points south have gone gangbusters. I drove down Rt. 89 to go to Newport this afternoon and the color on Rt. 89 was stunning. Perhaps the brightest I've ever seen. I think the sun was hitting it just right yet dif...

Re: Foliage color in the NEK

I was in NEK today. I didn't go quite all the way to Newport. I was in Lyndonville, Burke, Charleston and Westmore. I found the color to be spotty. There was some good color along 114 in spots. I tried to go up the scenic road for Burke Mountain, but it was closed. They were doing some kind of work ...

Re: Foliage is getting started early this year

Loafer, around the 5th is usually good timing for Quill Hill in Rangeley, ME. It's a spectacular 360 degree view. It's $10 per car and $5 per additional person to go up, but it is worth it. Maine has a had a bit more rain than us in NH, so I imagine the leaves will last longer. The foliage report I ...

Re: Foliage color in the NEK

Wow, that is pretty far along already. The reds and oranges really have sprinted ahead this year. I might not make up to NEK in time this year.

Re: Foliage color in the NEK

I drove from Norwich, VT up to Bradford, VT today going up Rt. 91. I saw some decent color between Thetford and Bradford. Maybe 10 - 20% turned in spots higher on the hills/mountains. Super bright colors, reds and oranges, a few yellows. Quite nice color behind the Hannaford's in Bradford. I would e...

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 ...
