Maine Fall Foliage Report for the Holiday Weekend
This could be THE weekend for amazing fall foliage in the Pine Tree State. This is the weekend where almost the whole state is at peak and we have not lost leaves yet. The wind and showers this weekend could change all that, and we may be raking before we know it. So let's enjoy the day off on Monday and living in one of the most beautiful spots on Earth!
From the State of Maine Fall Foliage website:
"Peak conditions are a projection for the upcoming holiday weekend. Included with the foliage map is a key that indicates color progression. While there is still some green in the canopies (mostly the oak trees, which are very hardy), peak is indicated when the forest is at 70 - 100 percent color," reports Gale Ross, Maines fall foliage spokesperson. From my visual perspective, the entire state is very, very close to peak with low leaf drop, added Ross.
