    I'm 1000+ miles away from your area but had the good fortune a few years ago to be in that part of the continent for fall. My suggestion, go North young man. The Eastern Townships area of Quebec province have the same mountains, climate and trees as NH & VT, but nowhere near the crowds of sightseeing buses.
    Brome, Magog and Greater Sherbrooke were the areas we visited and were very impressed.

    We have are in the northern Berkshires and there is definitely something going on. The leaves, while technically green, are beginning their change into the yellows and golds of autumn. These are mostly maples right now since birches tend to be just a step behind. Swamp maples (the red ones) are the first ones jumping up and down to get attention.

    Anyway, to track the conditions I use a few web sites covering Maine, NH and VT. They have just begun posting updates so peak will come along pretty soon.

    New Hampster:http://foliage.visitnh.gov.ns1www.si...dex-flash.html
    Vermont:http://www.foliage-vermont.com/

    hope these help out. I'm going to hike the Moat Ridge next Saturday so if there are any APUGers who'd like to join me, let me know and we can arrange times, etc.

    OK, I could do that. Maybe some other Apugers from VCP in Brattleboro would be interested as well.

    Yes, compared to Sherbbrooke my area of Western Mass. is overrun with tourists and visitors when the color peaks and this is made worse because the colleges in the area (Mt.Holyoke, Smith, UMASS, Hampshire, Amherst, Williams et al.) all seem to have their family weekends, big football games, and nationally advertised conference meetings scheduled to coincide with peak color. Still, good photo-opportunities abound and with the advice and experience of "locals" who know the backroads and tripod holes most of the traffic and elbowing can be avoided.

    Last year I put almost 140 miles on my shagging around for 'foilage.' I never strayed more than about 9 miles from my home.

    If there are "crowds" in the usual places, seek out the unusual places. There are so many side roads and country roads that are off the beaten path it's crazy. And for those of you who have no sense of direction, get a GPS, you won't get lost. (I prefer a 2-dimensional navigation system myself, one made of paper.)

    As for north central Mass right now, the colors seem to be muted still. I'm not sure if we're going to get any blazing color or not. With the rain this weekend we'll see.

    Same holds for Greenfield, Mass. area near 91. It shold be significantly cooler after this rain so that may accelerate the changes though.

    A few cold nights and the color changes are accelerating here in Western Mass.

    Now's the Time to Get Serious About Fall Color!

    Okay, it's happening fast now in Western Masstts. Looks like peak color this year in the Pioneer Valley may be before Columbus Day. Still, with all the variability over the region there should be lots of color-ops between Southern VT and the Connecticut line over the next ten days.

    More and more color down around the New Bedford area. I would say this weakend if not a little later will be nearing peak.
