    Leaf peeping in Western Maine

    About a 160 mile loop through central and western Maine (even touching eastern NH) and the White Mountains.

    Route 118 between Oxford and Waterford



    Keywadin Lake (I believe) on Route 5


    Somewhere on Route 5 on the way to the Freyburg fair.


    Fair fun!! The boy and I....


    A rest stop on Route 113 between Freyburg and Gilead


    Looking back down 113...


    From the outlook at the rest stop. Yeah, the guy with the Beemer has to be different...


    My passenger....


    I was surprised that the foliage WASN'T near peak. Yes, there was some color but given our location (western mountains) I figured that there would be MUCH more color given the summer we've had. So, if anyone is thinking of a foliage ride, NEXT weekend might be a good time to go!

    Thanks for the pictures, we have a 10 person ride scheduled for this coming Saturday through Washington Valley. Weather and peak foliage is looking in our favor. I will post some pictures after our ride.

    Well... As we were in that spot, I looked over at him. Not sure if it was a memory he wants to remember by the looks on his face!!
