First up the last Comment to win for the year.
It’s October so it’s time to get in on a chance to win some swag from my site. Each month I give away calendars, mugs, t-shirts or even ear rings (Don’t worry Lisa picked them out) and I will give something out again this month.
How to win
Just comment on this article (I don’t count comments made anywhere else. (sorry, thems the rules) Then on Friday at the end of this week (9 Oct – 13 Oct 2017) I will close out the contest and pick one person who will be the October winner and then!!!
I will put all ten winners for 2017 in a hat and draw them in November and they will get to pick a canvas gallery wrap image from my gallery at Vistaphotography.
Foliage report for Oct 9th
The Columbus Day weekend was weak to non-existent in MA, CT, and RI. Although I did hear that the Berkshires were near peak
Walden Vermont by Robert Lyons
Mount Greylock Massachusetts by John Burk
Two views from Mount Greylock yesterday, roughly around 2500 feet. The road up to the summit (3500 ft) was quite colorful; the forests overall are established early color increasing with elevation. Other high-elevation areas such as Savoy Mountain had nice reds with the rest (apart from early drop areas) emerging.
Mount Greylock byway is close to peak overall in the northern Berkshires. Upper Mohawk Trail looking good as well with that shot of red. Hoping for a break in clouds this PM, and that storm Nathan doesn’t bring too much down.
Monday afternoon report
This is a trip my wife Lisa made to White River Junction and back to Salem. Andover Mass up to Salem NH is looking nice. On I-89 just south of Whaleback mountain (ten miles before Lebanon NH) She is calling it at 90-95% towards peak. And I trust her when she says this.
The day was not a sunny day but Tuesday is so I think you should be pretty happy in the lakes region in NH this week.
Stowe should be looking good but I have heard or seen it, myself. From there south to Woodstock I would expect to be at high color if not peak.
For Maine, I think the color is heading from the northern areas and finally starting to head south. Places like Ellsworth and over to Baxter are coming along and I think this week Rangeley “should” be getting some color. I see mostly sunny days in Rangeley with lows in the low 40s to mid-30s this coming week, so that should create the right conditions for strong color development.
Well, I hope you have a great week leaf peeping and I hope you’ll take a minute to leave a comment on what you are finding out there and if you have a report, post it on the Fall Foliage Facebook page.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.
