MERRIMACK VALLEY region
Update for Tuesday, September 30, 2014: 40%
The color in the Merrimack Valley region continues to intensify quickly! While some trees are fully changed and close to peak, many other areas are still just getting started. The swamps are near peak, with beautiful bright reds showing in the swamp maples. Amherst is about 25% changed overall, with 75% or more on Boston Post Rd in the swamps. Route 101 between Bedford and around Milford is showing quite a bit of color, particular in the wetland areas. In areas around Concord, Loudon and Canterbury, the color is really beginning to develop. The back roads around Canterbury Shaker Village are very pretty right now, with alternating trees of red, orange and yellow around every bend in the road.
