I just realized that I went the entire month of October without posting a foliage picture. I guess November is still technically “fall” but the foliage tends to peak in October around where I live.
Over the past few years the foliage has been a huge let down and my annual trip to Screw Auger Falls and the neighboring Mother Walker Falls (laugh it up) and Moose Cave here in Maine have just been a test of my resilience to cold wind.
This year, the foliage was a tad bit better, though not as vibrant as I’d have liked when I arrived at Screw Auger Falls then went on to Mother Walker Falls and Moose Cave. We’ve been in the throes of a bit of a drought here in Maine this past summer and even now so I don’t know if that was a help to the fall colors or a hindrance. I do know that the lack of pounding rain and the gale force winds that tend to accompany fall rains meant that fewer leaves were torn from the trees before they had a chance to change color which is what tends to happen.
So, fall foliage for 2016… Almost a win…
Until next time…
