The 2008 Fall Foliage Season is Underway!


Maine’s fall foliage season runs roughly from mid-September to mid-October, but this varies widely depending on weather, topography and geography. During this time, the deciduous trees of Maine begin their colorful transformation. Right on cue, Maine’s fall foliage has had a burst of emerging color. Hard frosts during the past week and a stretch of sunny days have weakened leaves and allowed more of their hidden colors to show. The cold evening temperatures have not damaged the foliage as every region of the state still has very low leaf drop. Be sure to visit the front office to view our color coded state map indicating the current foliage conditions in the various regions of the state. We also have available for you, suggested drives to view the foliage in these various regions.

Good news for procrastinating peepers! Things are a little later than usual-there will still be gorgeous scenery to see in New England through much of October. So it’s not too late to plan a fall foliage trip!!! Give us a call….
