And the journey begins…

Hello Friends!

Here’s a fun fact: 83 percent of New Hampshire is covered with trees.  We’re talking thousands and thousands, make that millions and millions of trees.  While not all of them change color in the fall….a whole lot of them do, which is great because I LOVE leaves! Red, orange, yellow, crimson, coral, peach even green! Doesn’t matter the color, I collect them all and I’m going out on a limb here to tell you one of my favorite fall activities is leaf-peeping!

Autumn colors just beginning to fall!

New Hampshire enjoys an outstanding reputation for beautiful foliage.  My mission this fall is to seek out the best seasonal sights from Pittsburg to Plaistow, West Rye to Walpole and everywhere in between, and share them with you!

Be sure to catch up with me on Instagram and Facebook @LeafItToKris where I’ll be sharing stunning scenery and a whole lot of autumn activities.

So stay tuned!

Oh – PS! I almost forgot, I thought it would be cool to follow the foliage of some of my favorite trees in my neighborhood.  I walk by these just about everyday with my four-legged friend Chipper.  I’ll be sure to keep you posted on the progress.  Here’s what they look like this morning….

    Hi Kris! Might a blog post about the upcoming NH Pumpkin Festival in Laconia be possible? I am on the marketing committee and can provide info!

    Any reports of North Coneay or the Kankamangus? Deciding whether to go on Friday or the following Thursday?

      Hi! Just heard a report that yesterday the Kanc was about 30 percent changed. There has also been some color coming out in the North Conway area but it’s not at peak yet…But, with the cooler temperatures things can change very quickly so we are just keeping a close eye on it!

        Hi Kris, thanks for your updates. We are travelling from Texas on Oct 13th to see the fall colors in NH White Mountain region. Do you think we could see the peak in Kanc by that time or would it be too early to see the peak colors by Oct 14th. I read some reports that the drought conditions could affect the fall foliage this year. Is that true? This is my first trip for fall foliage and I am excited about coming to NH. Hope we won’t be disappointed. Thank you!

          Hi Vara,
          So glad you are coming to New Hampshire this fall! The White Mountains Region is a beautiful place to visit this time of year. While it is tough to predict exactly when peak foliage will be, historically it happens around Columbus Day Weekend, so around the time you are planning to visit hopefully will be just right. I did get a report from a colleague yesterday that the Kanc was about 30% peak. Depending on how cold it gets at night can certainly impact how quickly the colors change too. Will do my best to keep you posted as things move forward but feel free to check in and ask again! Safe travels!

            Thanks for the quick reply with all the details Kris, much appreciated. Have a good weekend!

    Hi kris,
    We live in Burlington Vermont and planning to visit nh this weekend. Can you please suggest the best route to see fall foliage of nh and the area where fall is on its peak. We were thinking of doing cog rail ride this Saturday, should we do it this weekend or postpone it to next weekend so that we catch best fall colors on cog? Thanks a lot.

      Hi Supriya, I sent you a message through Facebook, hopefully you received it with my suggestions! Please let me know if you didn’t! Thanks for getting in touch.
