Apparently Fall Foliage Season starts today
News from the MaineFoliage.com website: "The official start of the fall foliage season begins today in Maine. The 2013 Fall Foliage Report from the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry reports that the northernmost part of the state is experiencing subtle color changes of less than 30% with very low leaf drop at less than 10%. However, the state anticipates an outstanding foliage season according to the Maine Forest Service."
The website posts regular updates to the map, so keep an eye on it if you are planning a trip to Maine. Looks like it's going to be a good year for leaf-peeping! Peak season is usually the last week of September/first week of October - I'm looking forward to some long hikes with my camera.
