WHITE MOUNTAINS Region
Update for Tuesday, October 21, 2014: Past Peak
Most of the leaves in the northern White Mountains have hit the ground, and the region has gone past peak. Up around Bretton Woods, Crawford Notch and Franconia Notch, the leaves that remain in the trees are mostly brown. The mountaintops of the Presidential Range have even seen a bit of snow now too! The paths of hiking trails are where you’ll find those crunchy, pretty leaves now. Further south in the region, you’ll have better luck locating the last of the yellows and oranges, particularly in the area around Thornton. Try a ride to Mirror Lake in Thornton, where some nice color is still reflecting in the water. The eastern part of the region is also still reporting a bit of color. Our leaf peepers spotted some oranges and yellows along the shores of Echo Lake in North Conway over the weekend, and the Jackson area also is still showing some splashes of bright color.
