Well I was getting worried but Peak fall foliage is being reports all across New England. But on Monday I started seeing posts of great fall foliage and more showed up on Tuesday.
What I found in Canterbury NH
I chose to go to the Canterbury Shaker Museum for several reasons. The first reason is all the historical buildings. The second reason is if you have really good fall foliage and those historical buildings… Well you get the point.
I arrived and looked up and down the street between the buildings and most of the trees are fully colored in or nearly so. Each of the buildings lining the street hold different exhibits of what life was like in the Shaker’s day.
I was a little disappointed as I looked up the green to the big maples that lead your eye up to the Shaker Meeting house. They still haven’t turned yet so if you follow my advice below maybe you’ll find them at peak later this week.
My advice for this weekend
This Saturday the White Mountain Model A Ford club is showing off their cars (shine only) between 9 and 2 to show their vintage classic cars.
If the weather doesn’t do too much damage then you’ll be able to get fall foliage historic buildings and vintage automobiles. Can you get any better than that?
I plan (at this time) to visit there on Sat so I hope to see you there. More details can be found on the Canterbury Shaker website.
Foliage thoughts for the weekend and beyond
I was finding very nice color up Route 93 from the MA/NH border but it wasn’t solid peak all the way. When I got to the Hookset exit, it was entirely green so there is still room for more color to arrive throughout southern NH, VT and ME.
Massachusetts is also showing some really good color and this week you should look to the higher elevations in the western portions of the state.
In Maine the color will be progressing south and east of Sebago lake and proceeding towards the coast.
On my New England Foliage Facebook page I’ve been getting photos out of CT that while not peak photos do show the color is making its way there.
I received an email from Butch Lombardi (East Bay Images) who says that the color is really popping along Route 89 and points south so Saturday on I would be traveling in the mid/south areas of northern New England to have the best chance of finding peak fall foliage.
If you find great peak post a picture on my Foliage Facebook page for all to enjoy!

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.
