I'm on the coast of Maine and even today (October 3) there is hardly ANY color. Last weekend I took a trip North, and even North of Presque Isle there was hardly any color. We probably won't hit peak foliage until around October 15th or so this year.

Im in email contact with a friend, who hast a contract as a piano player onboard a Princess ship on the Indian Summer tour and het gets me informed every day.
He wrote me, that the leaves are still green and its really cold right now.
So everybody waiting for this special experience, has to wait some more days.

Best regards,

Nearly 80 today - Indian Summer for sure.
No fall colors yet.
Spoke with a friend who is near St.John, he said it is much cooler (cold) & the leaves are turning.

Having lived in New England and other northern states for most of my life, I can say that fall color is variable. There are a lot of factors involved, including weather, which determine exactly when "peak color" is, and how colorful the leaves are. It's a gamble. Generally only far northern New England has much color before late September. Sounds like this year is later than usual. I know we're running late, and less colorful, in Illinois this year.

Here is a nice link:


They have maps with the status of the colors in particular parts of New England and other northern states.

Take a look!

Yep, no fall colour yet and it's blazing hot outside right now! But this is unusual. Normally we would have at least some colour.

For next year, I'd play it safe and book late September or into October if you can.

We leave on October 24th. I presume you were on the Sea Princess and hope you had a great time. What were the movies, if you recall?
