Now that it's December, Maybe you can tell us if you found out the answer?
Well, obviously this is too late but this year due to the warm temps there were no really great dates.. I found some nice color some weekends but the poster in this discussion said around the 17th of Oct he found great color in Smugglers Notch. Also the dirt road between E. Burke and Guildhall was very pretty about the same time.
Since you commute is short, I would plan to come up next year to the NEK around the 1st of Oct and do some of the NEK foliage festivals. Then the next weekend do Stowe and smugglers notch and Groton state park. The next week do Woodstock and the Jenne farm... doesn't do Mich for this year but might help for the next

a megapixel shot, although it can be anywhere. I can do a standard pano but a megapixel shot is a bit different. Not sure what the diff is.
As you will have noted the colors started in earnest very late in Maine. I was finding Peak south of Rangeley and on the western border of Maine around the 26th of Oct.

It was an incredibly hard year to call since the temps stay well above average. In past year you would start finding great color (I don't use the word peak because it is hard to define or get people to agree to what it is.
Normally Rangeley is peak from between the 1st to the 8th of Oct and then the color moves south and east. Acadia turned this year around the 26th to the 28th. That is about a week late...

Sorry no one answered you but I work full time so I don't get up here all the time...

The Cape is a vacation all in itself.
The trick to the cape is learning to enjoy a part of the day at the beach and a part looking through meadows and woodlands in the late afternoon light. The warm afternoon light does wonders for the oak leaves giving the leaves a very rich warm red and orange color.

You could leave the cape but I would stay there this year.

As of today the 30th the color probably got nice down there but overall I don't think they really developed as much as I would like but if you have read any of my work then you know that you have to have a backup plan if the color fails to show up when you show up...

We're back home from a 9 day trip to Vermont, New Hampshire, a little bit of Maine and Massachusetts (Boston only). Scenic route 100 in Vermont is much more memorable to me compared to Kancamagus Hwy route 112 in New Hampshire.

The following locations are beyond beautiful and peaceful: Jenne Farm, Cloudland farm (aka Sleepy Hollow?). There are plenty beautiful photo opportunities along the roads leading to those farms. We're so glad that we visited them even during heavy downpour as we left the motel where we stayed. Thanks to God for stopping the rain entirely as we arrived at Jenne farm.

I got Smuggler's Notch imprinted in my mind. That place looks heavenly. My jaw dropped when I saw the tree tunnel (canopy of yellow foliage covering route 108. OMG, I jumped right out of my car to setup my tripod and camera. Franconia area (North of Lincoln NH) is also jaw dropping. There are more bright red color in Franconia NH than Smuggler's Notch.

Another beautiful (and unexpected find) is a dirt road on my way from Lyndon VT to Guildhall VT right off route 114 (it's called Victory Rd which turns into Granby Rd as we head east all the way to Guildhall grist mill). There are lots of red, orange and yellow foliage there.

The only problem I have with this leave peeping trip is that the beautiful places are scattered all over the states. We all have to commute hundreds of miles to see them. My wife and I did not stay in a single hotel/motel more than 1 night because we kept moving to a different location more than 50 to 100 miles away everyday. It's not worth the effort to drive back to the same hotel where we started the day so we check in/out in different areas every single day.

Wondering if someone would please help me with planning a short fall foliage trip starting in Boston on October 19th. We have reservations on Cape Cod starting October 21st. Are there any short drives (one overnight) that would make sense? I am unfamiliar with New England so I am hoping someone with some expertise will help me out. Thanks so much in advance.
I've been to Maine a few times but haven't take professional Autumn pictures. I want to this time. Where can we go for peak fall color and when? Thanks!

What is the good time for peak color, given the leaves this time?

Thank you!!
