MERRIMACK VALLEY region
Update for Thursday, October 24, 2013:
Percentage peak: 100% in Derry, Nashua. Some areas past peak.
What are you seeing? The Merrimack Valley region is one of the last spots in the state where you can still view some nice fall color. There are still orange leaves left in the trees, along with dark reds and browns. There is quite a bit of color remaining in the Nashua area. Derry, Pembroke and Allenstown are also still showing nice color. The trees are mostly orange, with some still showing touches of red.
Where can we see it? Route 101a from Nashua to Milford has lots of beautiful color and is well worth the drive. Route 3 in Pembroke and Allenstown is also still looking pretty. Bypass 28, Route 102, Lane Road and Island Pond Road in Derry are all showing lots of orange leaves on the trees. The area around Pinkerton Academy in Derry has a nice display of oranges and reds and the line of maples in the west parking lot are stunning.
This will be our final foliage report for the 2013 season- we hope you've enjoyed reading! Be sure to check back in early September 2014 for next year's reports.
