October 26: Did I really not post on that many days? The foliage is decidely well beyond peak now. Looking back at the series of pictures, I would classify “peak color” as happening during the first week of October, the pictures from the 3, 4 and 5th or so are just right there. Hope you enjoyed the series and I hope we get a chance to do it again next year!
October 14: I am thinking definitely “past peak” at this point, more branches than leaves now, even a bit of show on the ski runs!
October 13: I was able to run out for five minutes and for that five minutes there was a blizzard. No lie!
October 11, 2006: Oh my — winter preview!
October 10, 2006: Boy the bare trees are really starting to show.
October 9, 2006: My goodness! I didn’t realize I was this far behind!
October 8, 2006: Another perfectly glorious day, but I fear that all good things come to an end, and the end can now begin to be seen.
October 5, 2006: OK, maybe it could get a little bit better!
October 4, 2006: If you are not here, get here, it doesn’t get much better than this! Clear blue skies, 60 degrees and this!
October 3, 2006: A bit cloudy, but still quite warm for this time of year.
October 1: A perfectly glorious fall day! And I love this camera!
September 28th: In between a few more raindrops.
Here is the September 20th update:
Bill’s Mom sent along a tremendous idea that unfortunately I was slow in implementing. Seems that Yankee Magazine, headquarted somewhere up New England way, decided to let people know the state of their fall foliage not with some silly map or verbal description, but by taking a picture every day and posting it on their website. At least that is what she said, but I can’t find the day to day pictures on the site. Anyway, they were going to take a picture of one tree outside their office as an indicator of the “state of the leaves.”
In an endevour to go one better, I offer up this view Rib Mountain to show how the foliage is coming along. Weather allowing, I will post the same few every day until the trees are bare — or something like it. So when your out of town friends ask “how do the leaves look up there now?” You can email them the Leaf-O-Meter link.
By the way, be careful clicking on the larger image if you are on a slow connection. I uploaded a larger than normal picture to show off the new camera I (finally! the reason for the delay) got this week. Don’t know how to work all the bells and whistles yet, but my goodness it takes fabulous pictures!
Without further ado, here is the Leaf-O-Meter:
