Re: Connecticut Fall Foliage 2020

Some really nice foliage color in Enfield, but it's in commercial areas and pictures are hard to take.

Re: Connecticut Fall Foliage 2020

Peak foliage conditions here in Enfield and about 10% bare after yesterday's rain. Some areas of really beautiful color and some drab areas as well. Definitely better foliage conditions here than in most of Northeastern Connecticut. I'd say close to the same quality foliage as in Northwestern Connec...

Re: Connecticut Fall Foliage 2020

Lots of rain here today and 4.5" of rain this week. I don't know how the foliage is making it through this event. I'm going to drive around town tomorrow. Not alot of wind.

South Pond didn't look like a private area, the road past the pond leads to a cemetery.

Re: Connecticut Fall Foliage 2020

I did the drive to Meshomastic Forest today and the foliage color in the forest was drab and past peak. There was some nice color along I-91 from Enfield down to Hartford and along Route 2 to Glastonbury. I drove home through Glastonbury, Andover, Coventry, Vernon, Ellington and back to Enfield. Ove...

Re: Connecticut Fall Foliage 2020

The water picture is South Pond along Riga Road. I've driven that route many times before, but mostly in the Summer. I did the hike up Bear Mountain and Mt Frisell, but many years ago. I have a Volvo XC70, so it's a rough ride, but nothing too unpleasant. The rain yesterday, meant no dust. I like lo...

Re: Connecticut Fall Foliage 2020

We took Route 63 to Mohawk Mountain and it's still nice, if a bit past peak. Mohawk Mohawk State Park is still pretty, but I didn't take any pictures.

Re: Connecticut Fall Foliage 2020

I traveled on the same routes as last Sunday, but I did the trip with my son and his girlfriend. We diverted a bit to Campbell's Falls State Park area, just across the border into Massachusetts. Some really scenic long distance views from that area reminds me of Vermont. Outside Salisbury, we drove ...

Re: Connecticut Fall Foliage 2020

I decided to go back to Northwestern Connecticut today, it's still at peak after the rain yesterday.

Re: Connecticut Fall Foliage 2020

I'm still going to Meshomastic Forest tommorow. Over 2" of rain here today, hopefully the foliage survived the rain in that part of Connecticut.

Re: Connecticut Fall Foliage 2020

Hi Loafer and nice to 'hear' from you again, CT! So, I just drove through Oxford and Southbury today. I must say that the colors - and I am not exaggerating - were at or very close to peak in many areas. I definitely think over the next few days with the rainy, cool weather, this area will peak. Tw...

Re: Connecticut Fall Foliage 2020

The Canann shot is from Route 44 and was difficult to get with all the high speed traffic. I was going to take Riga Road from Salisbury, but I didn't have the patience to deal with that and with the drought, the road is probably very dusty. That area was busy today with lots of tourists. Going north...

Re: Connecticut Fall Foliage 2020

I'm going to Meshomastic Forest on Wednesday and the Glastonbury area. I go every Fall. Hopefully the foliage is still okay.

Mohawk Pond, never been there before.
