Peak Fall Foliage Colors for Northern Maine
Well, it's the third week of the 2014 Fall Foliage Report and beautiful colors are abundant, especially here in Northern Maine! It's expected that the fall foliage season will reach peak conditions this weekend.
Gale Ross, Fall Foliage spokesperson said, “With below average day time temperatures and very chilly nights over the past several days, northern Maine has seen the progression of color rapidly spreading throughout the forest canopies and hillsides in zones 6 and 7. The time is right for the spectacular viewing of why we love Maine in the fall.”
Get out your camera and head to the woods to see the beautiful wash of colors for yourself, then share your photos detailing where to see the best fall foliage at www.mainefoliage.com.
This weekend, the Department of Agriculture, Conservation & Forestry’s Bureau of Parks and Lands is offering ranger-led fall foliage hikes in the state parks and public lands throughout the leaf peeping season.
