A colorful guide to new england’s autumn leaves

According to the Associated Press UPDATED: September 9, 2016 at 4:16 p.m. | PUBLISHED: September 8, 2016 at 5:44 a.m. | PUBLISHED: September 8, 2016 at 5:44 a.m. The fall foliage in the Northeast dazzles locals and attracts millions of visitors, but many of them flock to the same bored vantage points.
The 165-foot tower was designed in 1914 as a summer home for liquor magnate Gilbert Heublein and provides stunning views that stretch north to the Berkshires in Massachusetts and south to Long Island Sound on a clear day.
A reasonably quick 114-mile climb up a foliage-filled path winds up the mountain with plenty of views of the Farmington River Valley leads to the tower. Visitors will also enjoy hayrides and pumpkin picking at a local pumpkin patch.
Ricker Hill Orchards, situated in Turner, Maine’s foothills, blends two of New England’s most beloved autumn activities: picking your own apples and admiring the shifting leaves. The orchard’s hillside “u-pick” area provides a spectacular view of Maine’s western lakes and mountains, with views of foliage reaching all the way to New Hampshire.

So, my leaf peepers, I hope you’ve had your fill of autumn colors for 2016, because we can never have enough… Mother Nature outdid herself in terms of making the chase exciting… If you’re still seeing fall colors, please share them on my New England fall foliage Facebook page.
One of my constant worries is that Mother Nature will get a head start on winter and drop snow on us early. She dumped an inch or so in Salem just before Halloween in 2011, and more than a foot in western Massachusetts. However! The occurrence we call Snowliage is what this will provide.
This photograph of mine shows how only the higher elevations are affected, while the lower zones are still covered in fall colors. However, from high to low vantage points, there are numerous “great” examples.
Of course, there will be frightfully fun times for both adults and children during this week and into Halloween (Monday night). BOTH can be found! In Salem, you can have both historical and witchy fun. There are numerous historical walking tours available, including the Salem Maritime National Historic Site, which highlights Salem’s maritime past and contribution to the development of a young nation.

From the mountains to the coast, the New England Fall Foliage tour is a riot of color. As the weather cools, the color starts to appear, beginning in Maine and moving southward like a slow fog. When compared to their evergreen counterparts, the vibrant reds, oranges, and yellows are magnified and impossibly light. The scent of wood smoke and burning leaves fills the autumn days in New England. The small towns that make up this area are a throwback to a bygone era, reminding you that not all cities have to be alike, with Best Buy, Walgreens, Home Depot, McDonalds, and other chain stores. It feels amazing to be surrounded by Mom and Pop shops.
If you’re planning a fall foliage tour in New England this year, prepare to start up north about mid-September…it all depends on the weather. In early October, the colors will cascade down from the White and Green Mountains, illuminating Vermont and New Hampshire. Cape Cod stays warmer for longer, with the shift expected in mid- to late-October and early-November. It’s difficult to predict the season, and many factors influence it, but if you visit New England in October, you’ll see what you came for.
