Fall foliage report for 4 October 2017 — 10 Comments

  1. Hi Jeff. When so you think the foliage would be best for a trip to the Berkshires in Mass (Pittsfield, Stockbridge)? Would next weekend (14th) or the following weekend (21st) be better? Thanks

  2. Hi Jeff, many thanks to you and your wife for the reports. I’ve been keeping an eye on these as we will be in Boston for 1 week starting 21st October. Il be in touch nearer the time so you can advise us where to go for best leaf peeping. Enjoy your travels. Susan and Malcolm Brown

  3. I traveled to VT and NH last Saturday thru Wednesday (9/30-10/3) and was somewhat disappointed to see sporadic and muted colors. Travelling from Burlington, VT east across route 2 there began to be some color but certainly not vibrant. The reds were quite brownish and golds were few and far between. As I ascended into the White Mountains across rt. 302 the colors began to show but still nowhere near anything resembling peak. There was at least 50% green still visible, not until I approached the Presidential Range and the higher elevations did I see colors begin to predominate. When returning south on 10/3 via rt. 302 I notice a nice change, now there were more vibrant reds and golds and the colors began to overtake the greens. As I drove south on Interstate 91 through Vt and south of St. Johnsbury the foliage returned to green.

  4. Great report on the Fall Colors as always and taking time to share your finds! Good advice to find the pleasures of fall regardless- whether it’s stopping at a great pumpkin patch, sampling some cider donuts, or craft beers and taking in the Outdoors! Safe travels and thanks for the updates!

  5. Hi Jeff Thanks for the hard work and real insight . Your report means a lot for planning the fall foliage trip. Based on your yesterday experience what time do you think peak can reach in Rangley, Augusta, Bangor and Acardia Region.. I was scheduled to come on Oct 13 but I shifted it to Oct 20. Waiting for your replies….Thanks Abby
