New England Fall Foliage Pics

I rode up into the mountains of Western Maine and into New Hampshire today, taking as many pics as I could, hoping to find some good foliage pics. I'll leave it up to you how they came out.

This picture is taken across Moose Pond, and it shows how a partially cloudy day can highlight certain areas and shade others:


This is a view across a potato field in Fryeburg "Harbor" where my father grew up, looking up into the mountains, where I am headed:


This is a view across a field in Chatham NH with the foliage, a house at the far end of the field, and the clouds which would end up making me very cold later in the ride:


Another view across the same field, highlighting the foliage a little more:


I'm getting up into the clouds now, it's getting colder, but the views of the rocky terrain and foliage at Evans Notch (mountain pass) are great:


Another view from the same location:


And a third view from the same location, showing the birch tree lined narrow road up through the mountains:


Foliage along the Androscoggin River between Gorham NH and Errol NH:


View of the area around Mother Walker Falls in Grafton Notch State Park:


Another picture of Lola in profile:


A roadsign in Waterford ME that is the subject of many Maine postcards. There are many surrounding towns named after countries (I have high school friends from Denmark and Sweden, and I currently work with a guy from Poland):

There is nothig more beautiful in the fall than New England. I rode the Blueridge Parkway out of NC and Skyline Drive in VA yesterday and there were just a very few trees beginning to change.

I have a friend from Vermont that says our beautiful fall colors don't compare to New Englands I'm afraid he might be right. rv
