Just take a look outside your window! For much of the State of Maine, the foliage is at peek, and according to the latest Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry Foliage Report dated October 11th, all but Central and Coastal Maine zones are at 75 to 100 percent color. The Central and Coastal Maine Zones are at 50 percent color change. Low to moderate leaf drop is reported throughout the State, so you can put away those rakes for another week to ten days!

The warmer days and relatively warmer nights have postponed peak foliage viewing for about a week! According to Gail Ross, the Fall Foliage Spokesperson “Now that the busy Columbus Day weekend has passed, you can take those long leisurely drives throughout coastal and western mountains of Maine this upcoming weekend and find less hectic traffic with stunning views of the fall colors. The entire State of Maine is now ablaze with color, but with plenty of green in the oaks to create a beautiful contrast.”

Below are some of the foliage pictures I took yesterday, October 10th in Bar Harbor
