SEACOAST regionUpdate for Thursday, October 24, 2013
Percentage peak: 100% in Portsmouth. Some areas past peak.
What are you seeing? The Seacoast region is still holding onto a little bit of fall color. There are some wonderful photo opportunities remaining in the morning and afternoon light, particularly in downtown Portsmouth, where there are still quite a few leaves left on the trees. In other parts of the region, you’ll find more leaves on the ground then in the trees, as the foliage season draws to an end.
Where can we see it? Drive around downtown Portsmouth to do some late fall leaf-peeping, where there is still quite a bit of color. Historic Strawbery Banke and the surrounding streets near Prescott Park are dotted with trees still covered in orange and yellow leaves. And even without fall color, Routes 1A and 1B along the coast are always a scenic drive. You’ll wind your way past beaches, harbors and coastline where the waves crash up against the shore.
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.
