Autumn Leaves and Landscapes of New England
Fall foliage, a nasty nuisance for most homeowners, is definitely a visual benefit in the mountains and lakes of New England. It turns those pleasantly green rolling hills into a pictorial paradise.
The greens turn hues of purple - mauve, mulberry, raspberry, violet - and hues of red – auburn, burgundy carmine, maroon before the leaves finally drop to leave a drab brown landscape waiting for the winter white.
“I have finally discovered the true color of the atmosphere,” Claude Monet once declared. “It’s violet. Fresh air is violet.” The purple shadows and lavender specks of light that enliven Monet’s haystacks and waterlilies are the same tones that speckle the forests of New England every fall.
New Hampshire, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont and upstate New York have made “Fall-Foliage Tourism” an effective, feasible and profitable venture. With posters and pages advertising: Fall Foliage Drives in New England, Fall Foliage Train Tours, Places and Mazes in New England – even a “Free Foliage App” is available. There is also a live New England Foliage Map and the Peak Fall Foliage Map and use the calendar below the map.
My visit to New England, specifically Acadia National Park, on Mount Desert Island in Hancock County, Maine; in October of 2018 included hikes to the Bowl and the Beehive, Jordan Pond and Bar Harbor. Although very enjoyable and productive, it was however 2-3 weeks too early for the true splendor of Foil Foliage – better luck next time (with the help of the newly discovered apps.)
