More Maine Foliage / Fall Work Day

This weekend was the reason people come to Maine in the fall. Along the coast and in southern Maine, fall foliage was still at its peak, and the weather seemed to be special ordered.

On Friday, our daughter had a cross country meet in Farmington and we were surprised to find quite a bit of foliage still very colorful in that area. The aforementioned weather was cooperative...



... but the views on the drive back home were what really stole the show...




On Saturday, we had our first fall work day - and finally got our chimney cleaned. It will be nice to start a fire in the woodstove now that the temps are in the 30s at night. But even while working, we couldn't help but notice the amazing colors...










If you weren't able to make it to Maine this fall for the foliage show, plan your calendar for next year. Columbus day weekend is usually a safe bet.

Awe, yes, I couldn't agree more. I take 95 several times a week, and each time, it has been very breath taking. The colors are absolutely gorgeous!! I have tried several time to capture the beauty on digital, but nothing is like the real thing.

Thanks for the beautiful photos. We have a house in Portland but have been down in NYC since right after Labor Day. We miss Maine so much and your post shows why. Hopefully when we are back this Friday we will still be able to take in the colorful landscape. I agree with you that a trip to Maine over the Columbus Day weekend is a guaranteed Fall Foliage spectacular.
