Leaf it to Pete, part three
Special Report: Leaf it to Pete, part three
Wind and rain may have knocked off a lot of the leaves last week, thanks to a lack of frost, almost half the leaves are still on the trees!
Slowly but surely the trees are giving in to the shorter days of October - and you don't have to travel far to see the show.
The outer reaches of the Mohawk Trail are showing their bright side. Peak color can be found from orange to North Adams.
Continuing out, you'll find some of most spectacular perches in all of New England as you pitch and dive around Mt. Greylock in the Berkshires.
Paralleling route 2 is rt. 119, a long, quiet windy road that cuts through some of the prettiest foliage in both Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
The Monadnock Mountains are right near peak, and while you're out there, you may as well drop by Central Square in Keene and see the annual pumpkin festival this Saturday.
Thereís over 20,000 pumpkins on display so, chances are you'll find your favorite celebrity etched in a gorging gourd.
And if pumpkins donít hit the spot, the reds and golds are sure to carve out a few smiles.
