Update for Tuesday, September 16, 2014:
If you're looking for fall color in the Monadnock region, head for the wetlands! We'll be waiting a little while for the real show to begin, but in the meantime, you can find some beautiful bright red leaves on the swamp maples around the region. The leaves around Perkins Pond in Troy are almost exclusively deep reds.While we still have (probably) several weeks to go before we start seeing widespread foliage, drives through Troy, Jaffrey, and Rindge with views of Mt. Monadnock are lovely any time of year. Route 124 from Marlborough to Jaffrey takes you by Monadnock State Park and provides a great view of the mountain several times along the way.
