Fall Foliage colors

It is colorful here in Greenville Maine.

Fall foliage tours are ongoing through October and color can be seen throughout the Moosehead Lake Area on foliage drives that are based on where the color is most prevalent at the time of your visit. For me, the sunshine and blue sky and above normal temperatures is the best time to sit outside and enjoy the views.
A another great tour is a float plane tour that gives you the grand perspective of color of our beautiful lakes and mountains in the Greenville, Maine area and beyond. Not to mention they are great folks at Currier’s Flying Service
