NH Foliage 9/28

I did some scouting this morning in Enfield. There are pockets of color, still early yet. I'm seeing a lot of the green-brown malaise that we've been seeing the last couple of falls, also. Not sure why. I went down 89 to Concord and between exit 15 and exit 11, really good color. I'd say a good 70% ...

Re: Newbie in search of Vermont foliage view

I took that photo on 10/12/15, so if things are running a week ahead, it might be pretty good.

Re: Newbie in search of Vermont foliage view

OK, I see how to do it now. So, I took this from the top of Devil's Hill in 2015: DSC_7726_a_sm_c.jpg Be warned that it is a steep hike once you get to the hill after walking maybe a mile from the parking area. Also note that when you turn down the road to the parking area there is only room for one...

Re: Newbie in search of Vermont foliage view

Sorry, I was going to post a picture I took, but I don't see any way to imbed one from my hard drive. Looks like it needs to already be on the internet as it is looking for a URL.

Re: Newbie in search of Vermont foliage view

CT, later when I am home, I'll post a pic I took at Devil's hill in a previous year.

MMAC, Happy Anniversary!

Re: Newbie in search of Vermont foliage view

Devi's Hill in Peacham will give a great panoramic view. It will be a sea of color. If you don't mind a little hike to get there. https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/verm ... hill-trail
Owl's Head Overlook in Groton State Park is another good spot and a short hike from the parking lot.

Re: Foliage in Quechee

I'm expecting to be in Quechee on Oct. 8th, I can report back then, but will report sooner if I end up going through there earlier. I can say in Lebanon, NH, our foliage has turned a bit early this year. I'd say we are at about 50%. I think this is probably due to some drought stress. What I've seen...

Re: Northwest Connecticut & Southwestern Massachusetts 10-19-2019

Thanks for the report, Loafer. I drove down to Melrose, MA from Lebanon, NH today and the most color I saw was around the Nashua exit on Rt. 93 and around exits 42 - 37 heading south on Rt. 95. I also did a little hiking at Lynn Woods in Lynn. I went to the top of the stone tower and quite the view ...

I think I forgot to mention, one mountain that had good color on Rt. 7 was Mt. Tabor.

Re: Looking for advice - foliage related

Your best bet at that time would probably be somewhere in northern Rhode Island. Later in the week maybe Providence or Newport. Someplace in southern MA may still be good at that time. But I've not been southern MA in the fall, so I can't say. Was planning a trip to RI last year and I was looking at...

Re: My Photos from Vermont 2018

Great photos, Ed. Thanks for reminding me about Nichol's Ledge. I couldn't remember the name of it. I'd wanted to go there. Oh well, next year, I guess. Was it difficult navigating your way down from there in the dark after sunset?

Re: Leaf-drop after heavy rain today

I didn't think Townshend was very good. I was on the roads mentioned, Peaked Mtn, etc. Rts. 30 and 35 and I saw nothing to write home about really. Maybe there was some decent color behind a church, where 30 and 35 meet, but I wouldn't make a special trip there, unless you want to go to that horse f...

Coastal Maine should be good that week. Maybe Newburport, MA, too.

Re: Woodstock/Pomfret

I drove through Waits River and East Corinth yesterday on Rt. 25. It was raining a bit, but still some decent color there.
