First I want to advertise my 2018 Fall foliage calendar. So many folks are having trouble finding really great fall colors this autumn, this is the perfect solution. Take home one of my calendars and you can look on the fall colors that I’ve caught in previous years. Iconic scenes of New England can be yours.

Comment to win, winner
Ed and Carolyn are the final monthly winners for October and in a few weeks I will draw the grand prize winner from among the 10 months of winners this year. I hope they are all visiting my site so they can choose which of my images they want to take home! I’ll be sending the winner a gift certificate for $125 to be used on my Fine Art America site.
Fall Foliage Update
Well, the fall colors have been rather difficult to find this season. If you read my 12 Oct article and then look at the comments. Many of your fellow travelers have been making reports there at the bottom of the article. So while I’m not posting daily (the darn job thing keeps getting in the way) I do get out and travel each week and join all of you in the search for beautiful New England fall foliage.
John reported some colorful spots on Sunday around the Quabbin Reservoir in Massachusetts but NOT widespread. in fact, at no place this autumn season has it been widespread since early October.
Up in New Hampshire, I am amazed that even as late as this past weekend there was still nice color as seen in this image by John Rowe.
Of course, all drone footage looks nice.
Where to go this week?
I Vermont I would try the Connecticut Valley of VT (Route 5) and the Champlain Valley (Route 7) are best bets for late New England fall foliage color in VT.
I’m changing my plans and heading to Maine this week and I have seen the Maine foliage page saying that North-Western Maine is peak and turning strongly in eastern/coastal Maine. So I will be posting immediate reports on my Facebook page and Twitter account if there is good color up that way.
Do you read the comments here?
I’m getting a lot of suggestions from folks on the road or just returning home. You should also read the comments for up to date changes and ideas on where others are or are not finding color.
Remember you can find a great scenic if you just stop and relax. Get out of the car (not on the highway!) but on a dirt road or near a farm. Do you smell stinky air near that dairy farm? Lisa calls it Dair-aire… 🙂 yes you are supposed to laugh.
In just a couple weeks you can go to Jericho Vermont and check out the quiet Cilly Hill Pumpkin Glow. Only happens on the 30th/31st of Oct.
Also in a week or so the Keen Pumpkin Festival is happening once again in Keene New Hampshire and we still have the “new” Laconia Pumpkin Festival. Click the links for these to find out more about them.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.
