Reader foliage question! — 4 Comments

  1. My wife and I are interested in seeing the colors (we have wanted to all our lives) and are flying into Boston from So. Calif. on October 3rd and will rent a car there. I realize that you can’t predict exactly which locations will be in peak color that week, but could you make some suggestions as to which areas are likely to be candidates? We would love to take some tram rides to higher elevations and zip-line back down. Is that available in VT or NH? Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thank you, James Farrell from Burbank, CA

    • Well it’s a good date to get here and I think for trams and ziplining you can try Wildcat, Loon, Cannon mountains in NH. In Vermont you have Smugglers Notch (here is a link http://www.arbortrek.com/) and this is a link to other ziplines in Vermont http://www.ziplinerider.com/Vermont_Ziplines.html.
      If you try Sugar Hill NH pr the North East Kingdom (North east corner of VT) You should find good color. If you do some reading you will see that we may be a week or so early on the color and if our weather cooperates and dips into the 60s and 30s with a little frost and bright sun, this could become a reality.
      What you will want to do in this case is be prepared to drive south a little. I don’t think you’ll have to go too far but but looking at the areas I mentioned it should put you in the heart of it or very near it.

  2. Jeff,

    I am from Alaska and have always wanted to come to NE in the fall. This year my dream is coming true. Following your website has been making me more excited than ever. I love what you said about having a great vacation no matter what.

    My husband and I will be celebrating our 33 wedding anniversary in Sept., and this will be our first empty nest vacation. I won 50,000 airline miles in a radio contest and it is making my dream a reality.

    Thank you so much for your foliage report. I love reading it! I will be sure to let you know how things went. 🙂

    Sincerely,
    Leigh Bramante

    • well Leigh, I can’t wait to hear what your plans are, where you’re heading, and what you plan to see. I’m hoping it will be an arrival later in September as the color during the month of September will just be developing in the upper New England areas. Although I’m sure at higher elevations and down in the swamps were going to be seeing some developing color over the next few weeks.
      Congratulations on your 33rd wedding anniversary
      Jeff foliage
