"Here we have the sugar maples," he says. They bring out the red colors absent everywhere else.

SALEM — In early October 2003, Hurricane Kate came roaring up the New England coast, taking time to grip every tree and bush in her path and give them all a vicious shake.
Jeff Folger, 50, can remember the storm, “two days of rain and wind.” He can remember the date, too, and the aftermath, leaves torn from limbs, the streets littered with the multicolored casualties that quickly faded to death-brown.
He remembers all this because he has an extraordinary memory and because that year he felt cheated out of something precious, the gemlike hues of a New England fall.
“It’s why I don’t take it for granted,” he says.

My name is Jeff Folger,
but people call me Jeff Foliage.
I have several pages that I write blogs for such as: http://www.4cornersnewengland.com/
My most popular blog is for Leaf peepers: Jeff Foliage.com.
I live in Salem, Massachusetts and work as a blogger and Travel Photographer. I'm also the founder of the New England Photography Guild.
Feel free to visit me on my blogs and see what life in New England is like.

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.
