Foliage season is so close! This is the time of year that I love SO much in our region. Nice cool, crisp, sunny days and chilly nights (throw in a cup of hot pumpkin coffee, an apple spice donut, and some cozy socks and I'm DONE for!).
Taking a walk down a dirt road covered in crunchy yellow, orange, and red leaves (with that hot cup of coffee and donut) is pretty much my ideal. I just love it.
So with that! Let's get the foliage report out!
It's mid- September- You can find very isolated pops and spatters of color on trees all across the entire region. Where you will find the best early color right now is across the mountains. The Adirondack mountains, the Green Mountains and northeast kingdom (northeast corner) of Vermont, and the White mountain region in New Hampshire has some great pops of reds, oranges, and rust colors developing. Best bets for early fall drives right now: Rt 3 in the Adirondacks of New York, Rt 100 along the Green Mountains in Vermont, and Rt 302 through the White Mountains and Mount Washington areas in New Hampshire. While we are not quite near "peak" color, it is a nice hint of what's to come!
Check out my foliage video (above). We here at Fox 44 and ABC 22 will definitely keep you up to date on the changing colors this season! Foliage season is huge to our region's economy, and this year promises to be nothing short of spectacular for tourists! Come visit and see our beautiful area!
