Leaf Peeping Season is almost upon us


Time to enjoy one of the many wonders of New England.  The Fall Foliage changing.  Like Mother Nature taking a paintbrush to the woods, it is without a doubt the best place in the world to see the spectacular show planet earth has to show us.  When I first moved to Rochester, New Hampshire I was like every tourist just admiring the trees wherever they were without a real plan.  Now I know there is a better way.


It’s all about location and timing


According to patch.com/new-hampshire/concord, the best time to view nature's splendor this year will be the week of October 4.  That week the colors of the trees should be at their most vibrant.  Write the date down on your calendar because seeing the foliage change is always like something you will get around to, but by the time you make some plans, the leaves have fallen.


Best Places to View


Some of the best places in New Hampshire to view the leaves changing color I have had the wonder of experiencing.  I have driven up Mount Washington at a good time, but I would love to take the trip on the famous Mt. Washington Cog Railway.  Another place that made a mention in the patch.com/new-hampshire/concord article was Franconia Notch State Park.  My wife and I hiked the Plume this year and we both said it would be the perfect place to come in the fall to see the leaves.  Another great suggestion was the Kancamagus Scenic Byway.  You can take a drive staring in Lincoln and head over to Osceola Range and the Sugar Hill scenic overlooks.


Fall is my favorite time of the year, always puts a smile on my face seeing the leaves change colors, Halloween...
