Fall Color in New England
First, let me thank everyone who shared info in the recent thread about bookstores in the New England region with good photography collections. I hope others found it as helpful as I did.
This thread hopefully will stimulate discussion concerning areas of Fall color in the region. If N.E. Apugers are willing to share information on this it could prove a good resource for Apugers within the area and those from other regions who are planning color photo safaris this Fall.
I'm 25 minutes north of the Connecticut line in Western Mass. and as of Friday September 18th I don't have anything to report yet. I'm hopeful that the wet weather earlier this summer will make for some good color this year. From what I've seen, The Pioneer Valley around UMASS expects peak color around Columbus Day weekend--on average.
Which reminds me of the old statisitcs joke about the statistician who sat with his feet in the oven and his head in the freezer but on average he was quite comfortable.
Anybody from Northern Maine or New Hampshire have any info to share yet? Anybody in Southern Rhode Island or The Cape care to estimate the average date of peak color in their area?
Apug Leefpeepers of New England unite!!
