Autumn in New England

Autumn in New England is one of the most brilliant displays of autumn color anywhere.

In the far north, in Baxter State Park in the north woods of Maine, the autumn colors begin turning in late September. Autumn comes to Baxter early but it is one of the very best places to see New England colors. The North Woods of Baxter are like no other woods you have ever seen. It is solid woods where roads and trails are small and temporary and where they wage a constantly losing battle with the encroaching trees.

By early October, Autumn in New England has reached Acadia National Park in mid-coast Maine. The is another great place to see the colors change in New England. Probably the best place to see the autumn colors in Acadia is on the top of Cadillac Mountain. Here you can see the brilliant reds of maple and birch, often shrouded in fog, against a backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean and Frenchman's bay. I would vote this spot as having some of the very reddest leaves in New England. This is very much an unforgettable experience. The picture above was taken on Cadillac Mountain.

Further south, in the White Mountains, along the Kancamagus Highway, the peak of autumn color, usually happens around the second week of October, often on Columbus Day. Autumn in New England here means  the Swift River roaring along between banks solidly lined with the brilliant reds of Maples and the softer yellows and the white bark of birch trees. This is one of the best drives into the state and perhaps the best drive through the fall colors of New England. The picture on the right was taken along the Swift River on the Kancamagus Highway.

A little further north, another great spot to view fall in New England is Crawford Notch. Here, Silver Falls is the epitome of fall colors in New England. This is without doubt one the of very best places to photograph the full majesty of the fall colors. I once spent a whole day here and took over 200 pictures of the picturesque cascades of Silver Falls. If I had to pick one spot to represent the very best of Autumn in New England, I think Silver Falls in Crawford Notch would be it. The picture to the left is Silver Falls.
