Fall foliage over Saco River covered Bridge

Fall foliage over Saco River covered Bridge

I’m slowly getting my old foliage trips posted on my foliage safari’s. This one was 5 Oct between Lake Chocorua up to Pinkham Notch and back again to Lake Chocorua.
The color should have been very good but we had a couple of Nor’easters come through taking the color down. Here is a link to a fall foliage picture slide show on the Everytrail website.

Jeff Foliage

My name is Jeff Folger,
but people call me Jeff Foliage.
I have several pages that I write blogs for such as: http://www.4cornersnewengland.com/
My most popular blog is for Leaf peepers: Jeff Foliage.com.
I live in Salem, Massachusetts and work as a blogger and Travel Photographer. I'm also the founder of the New England Photography Guild.
Feel free to visit me on my blogs and see what life in New England is like.

I started with Yankee Magazine as their first blogger on everything fall foliage. Now I blog on my own blog on my favorite subject, telling leaf peepers where the fall foliage is showing up in New England and helping them (to some extent) plan their fall foliage vacations.

Fall foliage trip on 5 Oct 2010 — 6 Comments

    • Well I will say that when I do these foliage safari’s I don’t just post the really good pictures. Maybe a good photographer would only show you his great stuff but I post photos from all along the route. I post what you might see if you followed the route I took and I have the thought that someone might see something that they want to explore more of.
      That is my reasoning behind showing even my images with the warts and all… These are my journeys on these dates and this is what I found. Sometimes a foliage safari will yield great autumn shots and other days it’s merely an excuse to get out and explore. 🙂

        • Well the best part of this answer is that you don’t have to go anywhere but here (for the most part) to get my foliage updates. I’m not Yankee’s foliage blogger anymore and I have this blog as my primary foliage blog and for general scenic New England subjects I have my Scenic New England travels blog and then new this year I started the New England Photography Guild. This is where I’m bringing together some of the finest nature, wildlife and landscape photographers That New England has to offer.
          I hope you won’t be to disappointed that I won’t be on Yankee anymore.. I’m going to miss them but that’s life! Change is inevitable… 🙂

          • Ahh I saw your foliage drives blog posts from late last week and got a bit confused. I did notice that you are no longer their blogger which was a shock. Glad to still have many options!

          • Well they (Yankee) are on my foliage resource list (even if I don’t work for them anymore) They are a very good resource and their new Foliage blogger (Jim Salge) tells me he’ll be doing it differently. I’m not in the loop on what that is exactly but he will forecast the foliage (Jim has a meteorology background) So he has a good feel for what the weather is doing to the foliage. I know Jim as he is one of my NEPGuild (New England Photography Guild) Photographers so I know his photography is good without question.
            I have to admit he’s a better writer than I am and his first article shows this.. But from what he says he won’t be driving to check on the foliage so it will be different and we’ll have to see how the fall goes. I did notice that we both agree that this fall has the potential to be a really good fall foliage season. He thinks Sept will be a bit above norm temp wise but October will be inline with our normal temps.
            What this tends to mean to us is that the colors could start off around mid Sept but the won’t really get going until Oct. This will leave us wide open to those early fall wind/rain storms that took or leaves down last year… Assuming all this comes to pass… Let’s hope for no wind/rain storms between 15 Sept and 1 Nov, Only a gentle misting rain once per week…

I'd love to hear what you think!
