Fall foliage-Where to look this coming week — 8 Comments

  1. 10/16/12 …. I finally got to view beautiful foliage today ,driving from NY to Waterbury Ct.,once I hit route 8 driving through Beacon falls I was blown away ,the colors were bright lots of orange and yellow,and slpashes of red here and there.Finally after arriving to Waterbury I was pleasently surprised as Drove past Fulton Park on Cook Street wow bursting with colors of red ,orange,yellow and rust !!!

    • Well thank you for the report Sandy! So Route 8 in CT along with Waterbury is the place to be in CT. Did you get over into Litchfield yet? I can’t wait to hear what else you found!

        • It depends… it’s going to be raining tonight through??? Sat? so this will really come at a bad time with so much color getting ready to turn or turning…

  2. Here on the south Shore and Cape things are not perfect, some trees are peak, some are bare, some are past and a lot are still green. Things definitely aren’t coming along evenly.

    • Well Ben, things are never perfect 🙂 such as me… I drove through south eastern MA into Warren RI and while consistant was NOT the word of the day. I found quite a bit of wonderful color to keep me happy.

  3. Boston got lucky. A frost had predicted on Friday night but temperatures only fell to 33 degrees. This is what I was told at the Arnold Arboretum today. I am noticing that some of the maple trees in my neighborhood are slowly turning, giving very nice colors. This is in stark contrast to what I saw at Hartwell Tavern in Lincoln, where most of the leaves had fallen.

    • Thanks Josh… it’s going to be hit or miss on finding fall color the rest of this season. I’m sad to think that Bedford where the Hartwell Tavern sits is in stick season already… I’m heading for a coastal loop tomorrow through southern MA and RI.
