Should be about peak color in the western mountains this week. Warmer temps may have delayed it a little.
At least when you go to the East Outlet you can look at the pretty leaves while the river blows by at 2500 cfs. :roll:

Was up in Rangeley yesterday and it surprised me at how little they had changed. Had my nephews along and wanted to show them some near-peak colors. And in my estimation it was quite disappointing. But that is Mother Nature.

Hiked Mount Madison (NH) today via the Valley Way trail out of Appalachia. Looped across to the Air Line after summiting and descended the massive shoulder of Mount Adams overlooking King Ravine. Impressive colors down in the valley hardwoods and further up the birches among the evergreens were brilliant yellow. Mountain Ash was booming yellow and orange with bright red berries too.
Trails were suprisingly wet with muddy sections and the brooks/falls were flowing nicely. Upper elevations are getting decent rains and we battled showers on the descent.
As always...a superb hike in the Whites. Peak color probably within a week.
