Default Better get out and see the leaves

National Weather Service: "A strong cold front will cross through the region on Thursday night through Friday, bringing a period of moderate to heavy rainfall and strong southeasterly wind gusts up to 35 mph. The combination of heavy rainfall and gusty winds will bring down a significant amount of the fall foliage." Tomorrow will be a lovely day. I plan to go kayaking in Vermont before le deluge.

We did our annual foliage run Sunday, and it was awesome—especially for a not-awesome drought year.

Sandwich Notch Road to Benton's for breakfast, followed by 49 to Tripoli Road to 175 to 3 to 112...

B's is my favorite breakfast in America (tied with Tusker House in Disney).

Even after they fall, and the tree lined road become less idyllic, I find walking among the dropped leaves through the forest to be rather soothing.

Smile Yes, After the Leaves Fall...

I've headed south for the season, but birch, ash, hickory and quaking aspen start dropping their bright yellow leaves about now.

It was quite the sensation to have the morning sun reflect off our forest floor and illuminate the interior of our cottage with a bright yellow glow. (And I mean fluorescent-bright).

When the season is at its height, you don't need to drive far from Lake Winnipesaukee to see an intensely-bright shimmering of colors. Just east of the lake and north of Rochester will take you through old-time curvy NH roadways--like Rt. 153.

On windy days, the flow of bright dropped leaves across the road is transfixing!

Agreed on the road leaves—I miss driving Route 3 South through Tyngsboro, Chelmsford, etc. when it was a narrow, tree-lined tunnel. I do not, of course, miss the traffic.

Also, John's comment about walking with freshly fallen leaves is also accurate.

I live on a dirt road, and so I get the effect of the maples without having to go anywhere.

Thought I would chime in as it's been a while from 3000 miles away. Fall colors over the Sawtooth Mountains and Redfish Lake in south central Idaho.

Foliage from Major was still solid Saturday. Went up the back side via Precipice West and Straightback to avoid the (horrible Instagram) crowds.
