Here is what you were waiting for, your fall foliage report for (really the 13th) 13 Sept 2017. Lisa and I just got back from a 400-mile drive from Salem to North of Lancaster New Hampshire.
My Fall Foliage Report
Our Route of travel on the 13th
- I-93N to Franconia Notch where we got out a bit to explore.
- Route 3 to 302 and at Bethlehem, we took 142 north to Whitefield
- We continued on to 135 North till it joined onto Route 2 in Vermont
- We picked up VT102 to Guildhall VT and the Crawford Grist Mill.
- Back down Route 3 to Cannon Mountain and Route 18 to 117 in Sugar Hill
- Lunch at Polly’s Pancake Parlor
- Out to I-93 and down to Lincoln where we picked up the “Kanc”
- South on Route 16 to I-95 and home, Whew….
I will state for the record that if the fall colors that I saw today are any indication of what’s to follow over the next two months, then you are in for a treat.
*Disclaimer: Before anyone starts to panic, YES I did see some great fall foliage colors today but the predominant color is still green!
That is not to say Lisa and I didn’t go ooh and ahh many times during our travels. When you go from an ocean of green to a red and orange tree, it is a bit startling and there are many roads with roadside swamp maples or maple saplings that are to some degree turning but the millions of mature trees are mostly green as of yet.
In spite of what you will see here, IT IS EARLY COLOR.
Franconia Notch 13 Sept 2017
Lancaster NH 13 Sept
Guildhall Vermont 13 Sept
Sugar Hill NH 13 Sept
Kancamagus Route 112, 13 Sept
As we were just passing Loon Mountain on Route 112, we could see all the pavilions and tents set up for the Highland games. These will be running on the 16th and 17th (this weekend) so be aware there is no parking on Route 112 and you should plan to use the shuttle that will pick you up to get there.
And for something a little different, here is a clip when we were driving up the western side of the Kanc from Lincoln New Hampshire.
