Southern Maine Fall Foliage

Main House 2011

Central and Southern Maine are the best locations to see colorful foliage through the weekend, according to the final 2011 fall foliage report from the Maine Department of Conservation.

Maine Forest Service and state park rangers are reporting past peak leaf color in each of the state’s seven tracking zones, but pockets of remarkable color can still be seen in the Kennebec Valley region along Route 201 and in Cumberland and York counties in southern Maine. Leaf drop in these regions is currently 50 to 70 percent, rangers say.

Autumn Colors

I went out for one of my rare October drives this Tuesday on Route 9 and Shore Road to see Nubble Light House in Cape Neddick  and I was surprised to still see an abundance of bright colors and  leaves still on the trees.  I am usually  here attending to guests here at the Atlantic Birches Inn a Southern Maine Bed and Breakfast, for most of the October leaf-peeping season. I wase amazed at the brilliance of leaf color even at higher elevations.  Along the beach here in Old Orchard Beach many of the trees are at  their color potential. We have Ash, Maple, Birch and Oak trees on our property that are in their full Fall display of bright fall colors. The road that we are located all the trees  are  orangingy, red and yellow Crayola Crayon shades that over-shadows all other leaf colors.

Wooden Covered Bridge

Numerous guests have taken area drives on scenic inland To Route 5 toward the White Mountains and coastal roads this past weekend and brought back spectacular photos of waterfalls, swimming-holes, covered wooden bridges,  landscapes, hiking trails, and all the photos bore a palette of bright colors.

Never mind the experts. We have gotten the word straight from the source, our guests:  The leaves are still on the trees and that the show will go on for another week or two. Don’t miss them.
