This year the state of Maine did not experience a typical New England Maine summer. Maine weather varied greatly with some areas seeing record rainfall to some areas seeing very little. Autumn foliage this fall will vary based on where you travel.

Northern Maine had a very dry summer. as of 4 days ago guests stated there is no color in the area. When driving to Greenville, they started seeing fall colors. We had periods of rain and days of sunshine.

We are seeing the Birch trees with higher then usually leaf loss. They always drop leaves first. Will have to see if the yellows come on. Once the color starts, we see changes up to 20% each week.
