MERRIMACK VALLEY region
Update for Tuesday, September 16, 2014:
The fall colors are just barely showing in the Merrimack Valley region, but you will find some red leaves mixed in among the sea of green if you know where to search. Once again this week, the swampy areas are where you'll find the most color change. Tips of burning bushes are red as are some of the swamp maples in areas
of the region with more waterways. Cooler nights this week
will help start turning greens into yellows, oranges and reds. The swamps along Route 77 between Dunbarton and Concord are showing some beautiful crimson color- this area is always one of the first spots to change.
