Fall Colors Foliage Report
Maine fall colors have come on strong this last week. Rain rejuvenated the tree health. Then a few dry days, sunshine and a light frost was just what we needed to update our foliage report to moderate colors. The reds became brighter, and we are saying “Hello Yellows”. The striped maples are beautiful.
Fall Foliage Report for This Week
October 2015 – 10/7 – Moderate autumn colors – 35-55% range with leaf loss varying depending upon the trees running at overall about 15 – 3o%. Along with the rains came some wind. A delightful time to take a walk while the colors are vibrant.
Scenic Fall Drives
– Always a winner is an off the beaten path where it looks like your driving through a tunnel of fall colors. Covered bridges, mountain side colors, and rambling brooks and streams dappled with colors. All just minutes away from Greenville, Maine in the Moosehead Lake Region. Check out scenic fall travel Rt 201 N to Rt 16E to Abbot, which intersects with Rt15 and head North and other fall pages on this site. Everyone loves the beautiful nature views.
Foliage reports will be updated here on our blog or feel free to contact us directly. Our prediction is that it we have another 2 weeks of fall foliage viewing. This is later than last several years. Many visitors to New England are driving to Maine chase the beauty of the season. Oh yeah and to see moose too!
Until next time, take care and enjoy the sunshine. Today is going into the 60’s. There is a beautiful yellow stripped maple with a chair under it is calling my name.
