Update for Friday, October 24, 2014: Past Peak
The Lakes region is now past peak, but don’t let that discourage you from visiting the area! There is still color to be found in the more southern part of the region, mostly russets and yellows, with even an occasional tree still sporting nearly all its leaves. Towards New Hampton and the Newfound Lake area, the colors are dulling to brown and rusty hues. The rain and winds this week sadly brought down many leaves, but you will still find some bright red sumac closer to the ground in the Alton area. They add a nice burst of color along the roads. Route 28 between Alton and Wolfeboro remains a favorite drive of one of our leaf peepers, even as the season begins to wind down.
