Leaf it to Pete
Special Report: Leaf it to Pete
It's a right of passage in New England. A vivid transition between the lush green of summer and the colorless white of winter. It's foliage season.
"The color the trees, the air... It feels good"
"I love the foliage change."
"I think it's beautiful!"
As the days shorten, green color in the leaves starts to fade. That reveals their true colors...
The color show speeds up as it gets colder out...and thats no exception for up north.
There, the leaves are already living up to their reputation as some of the best around.
Right now peak color can be found anywhere from the small cities of western Maine through the most remote villages of Vermont.
A favorite spot, route 2 from St. Johnsbury, Vermont to bethel Maine. Thatís where Iím heading...it's one breathtaking ride and its right off of 93...just under 3 hours from Boston
If you're not afraid of heights, the Kangamangus Highway will put you above it all. The "kank" as it's called gives panoramic shots of the White Mountain national forest...you wont see any white though. This weekend the White Mountains will be covered in oranges, reds and yellows....
Oh those colors are certainly starting to show up north. If you'd like more information on where you can see foliage this weekend, visit our web site at whdh.com and click on weather. Next week Iíll have another update as the right of fall makes its way closer to Boston. Pete Bouchard. 7news.
