Welcome Leaf Peepers!
Fall is marching on and the days have been cool but limited sun in southern New England while Northern NE has had a bit more sun. This is resulting in Spotty fall colors in Vermont and New Hampshire. The evenings have been down right chilly and I’m trying real hard to hold off turning on the furnace.
I’m so ready to get back up north this Friday and make some wonderful pictures. Tropical Storm Matthew may be a non-issue here in eastern New England or will it??? Will it change it’s mind and smack us hard? If you look at this picture of Mathew from the Weather Channel, you can see why I MIGHT be worried, just a teensy weensy bit.
You can check my worries at the bottom of the page but between here and there, enjoy the views of New England fall foliage at peak or near peak as of 5 October.
The 5 October fall #foliage_report will cover Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.

Well I’m waiting for some friends to update me on Maine but meanwhile the Maine forestry and tourism folks put out their Maine fall foliage weekly report for October 5th 2016 and It’s looking pretty nice from Rangeley north going by their chart.
This coming week into the Columbus Day weekend should be great all through the northern half of Maine with spotty color in the southern half but you may find some bright bursts of color in and around low swampy areas.
I hope you get a chance to get up here this coming week and I plan to be out there myself on Friday… Leave a comment on any places you think I should try for… but please don’t ask me to go to the Canadian border… (Too long of a drive)

Bob Anderson reports: we are in the Adirondacks in the Lake Placid region. I don’t know who predicted a bad foliage this year but the trees here are lit up like a Christmas tree probably 90% towards peak.Jeff "Foliage" Folger You can purchase images by visiting my Fine Art Gallery websites

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.
