New England Fall Foliage Scenic Drives?
Almost every time I head out the door in October, I could term it, a “fall foliage scenic drive”. But I will try to keep this list of ever growing scenic drives to a reasonable amount.

I do this around 18 September Every year and this gives me an idea of how the colors are matching my expectations.
