Fall foliage update and getaways

TS-TRAVEL-FALLGETAWAYS-6-MCTFall colors are already starting to show in some parts of New England. In Maine, state forestry officials said last week that northern Maine was a third of the way to peak color. Leaves are still green in the lower two-thirds of the state. Similarly, northwestern New Hampshire is close to peak color. Leaves are turning in western Massachusetts. In upstate New York, local spots of color are visible, with the peak in the Catskills and Adirondacks starting this week into early October. In North Carolina, experts say to expect that state’s first color soon at Mount Mitchell, the highest peak east of the Rockies.
