Update for Friday, October 24, 2014: Past Peak
After a windy, rainy week, the Monadnock region is definitely past peak. The leaves are mostly decorating lawns and meadows, with a few colorful bursts to be found here and there in the trees. Some of the trees near the ponds and lakes surrounding the base of Mount Monadnock are still hanging onto a bit of color, so consider a hike up this magnificent mountain this weekend. With a nice sunny forecast in store for the next couple of days, the views from the top should be spectacular and a wonderful way to view what remains of the regions fall color.
