Catnap Books - Route 7 just off I-88 - Cobleskill, NY




The Miller's Thumb - A collection of fun and functional accessories for your family, friends, home and garden. - Greensboro, VT.

October 23, 1999 update:

North of the notches we had some high winds and now rain. Many of the leaves are now on the ground. This year's foliage season up here is pretty much done with.

There are still a few areas with colorful leaves on the trees if you look around.

This is one of my favorite seasons, one you might like to take advantage of. With the leaves gone you cam now see a greater distance through the woods.

As you drive around the back roads in New England, notice how many stone walls you can see. These were once around the edges of farmers' fields. You'll be amazed how much of the northeast was once "clearcut" and cleared of stumps and stones to make farm land.

Some scenes on October 7th, 1999

These maple trees were along route 135 in Bethlehem, NH.


The diversity of northern New England is seen here. Tourists in a car, a tour bus and a logging truck. This was on NH route 3 just north of Franconia Notch.

A shot through the rear view mirror. If you're going to be stuck in traffic this is the place to do it! Beautiful views surround you! (The delays are minimal here and they don't work on weekends, so don't be concerned) This is also on route 3 just above the notch.


Mount Lafayette has a good dusting of snow already! A great background for your pictures. This is by exit 35 from NH I-93



A couple of more pictures of foliage, tourists and construction.




Bumper Suction on Route 3A in Bow, NH - September 30, 1999.

Route 3A from Hooksett to Bow, NH is a heavily travelled shunpike used by many truckers and the rest of us to avoid the toll booths on I-93.



This one was the victim of a little "bumper suction" just south of the south end of I-89 by the coffee company.



The other bumper suction victim was also an 18 wheeler. Whoops!




Seti@home banner - search for exreaterrestrial intelligence - moose group.

The night sky in Northern New England is something to behold. The crystal clear mountain air makes for the perfect place to watch the stars.

Did you ever wonder if anyone is out there?

A few years ago there were a lot of UFO sightings up in Colebrook. If anyone reading this knows who to contact, please let me know.

Here's a way you can help in the search for... well... whatever turns up!

SETI@home is a scientific experiment that harnesses the power of hundreds of thousands of Internet-connected computers in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). You can participate by running a free program that downloads and analyzes radio telescope data collected at the Arecibo Radio Observatory. There's a small but captivating possibility that your computer will detect the faint murmur of a civilization beyond Earth.

SETI@Home only uses your computer to process data when you aren't using it and the screen saver would be on anyway.

Here's how to get started with the SETI@Home: You download and install the really neat computer screen saver that is used to process SETI data.

It's simple, first download the SETI Screen Saver and install it.

Once you start processing, Join Team Moose. You'll need to select a nickname and receive a password via email.

The SETI@Home screen saver is something you've just gotta see!

www.allroutes.to is a travel and business guide that takes a somewhat different approach. You can navigate on vacation or for business by routes. Follow an Interstate highway, a state route or back road to shopping, business or a vacation. Weekend trips can be more interesting if you know where the out of the way places and views are.

 


Sooooo... Climb into your spaceship and cruise in cyberspace!

 


Then get in your car, motorcycle, truck, plane, UFO, whatever you have, and visit what you've seen in person!

October 15, 1999 UPDATE: Right now and until the leaves fall from the trees is PEAK or slightly past peak in the Great North Woods! Don't be stopped by what you see in the notches. North of the notches the leaves are still on the trees and as bright as can be. The leaves have been blown off ny the high winds in Franconia Notch, just above the notch and beyond the foliage is magnificent!

There was snow in Franconia Notch, Bethlehem, and other high elevation areas which makes for a great background for foliage pictures.

There are still a few pockets of green, but not much. Now's the time folks!


October 8, 1999 UPDATE: Right now and until the leaves fall from the trees is PEAK in much of northern VT and NH! Don't be stopped by what you see in the notches. North of the notches the leaves are still on the trees and as bright as can be. The leaves have been blown off ny the high winds in Franconia Notch, just above the notch and beyond the foliage is magnificent!

There was snow on the top of Mount Lafayette and a few other peaks which makes for a great background for foliage pictures.

South of the notches along I-93 down to Concord are starting to become colorful. Route 132 in Canterbury was really pretty today.



Thursday, September 30: A LOT more leaves have changed, much of northern NH and VT is at or approaching peak. Now and until the leaves fall from the trees is the time to do your leaf peeping!

 


Wednesday 22 September, 1999:

NH route 3 from Lancaster to Whitefield, route 116 from Whitefield to route 142 near the the Bethlehem town line to Maplewood Hill in Bethlehem, to route 302 to Trudeau Road to NH route 3 again in Bethlehem: Color increasing still more since yesterday. The cold nights have really helped in changing from green to yellow, red and orange.

Depending on where you happen to look you'll see from 30% on up to 90% in color. From Lancaster to Bethlehem are mostly maples and birches showing reds, some orange and yellow.

NH Route 3 from Trudeau Road in Bethlehem to the middle of Franconia Notch: 50% or so is now pastel yellow with some red. This area has mostly yellow birch, white birch and silver birch trees as well as beech and some maple. for deciduous trees. There are also some areas of conifers that will remain green.


NH I-93 from Franconia Notch to Campton: A few really colorful trees stand out, with some areas perhaps 20% leaf peeping material.

NH I-93 from Plymouth to Concord: The hills are mostly green, the trees next to the road where they are impacted by winter salt are changing color.

NH route 3A from, Concord to Hooksett: mostly green with a few trees turning.

It's kind of hard to tell exactly when is really "peak". Some trees turn color considerably before others, even right next to each other. As the season pregresses, some or all of the leaves from the trees that turned early will fall to the ground while the leaves on later turning trees will still be on the trees.

There are all kinds of guides that will say a certain time is "peak", and some years they may be right. It seems that some years most of the leaves in an area turn all at once, while other years it's more spread out. I'll try to relate my perceptions to you as accurately as possible, but bear in mind, even my perception of the foliage may be different from yours.


September 20, 1999 foliage report:


NH Route 2, Lancaster, through Jefferson and Randolph to Gorham: a few trees with some color, most are still green. The overall look of the mountains from a distance shows a slight glow of color beginning.

NH Route 16, Gorham through Gorham, Berlin, Milan, Dummer, Cambridge and Errol: Same as route 2. (We were in Berlin for the annual Game of Logging Festival).

NH The logging (dirt) road from Dummer through Cambridge to Upton, Maine that goes by way of Double Top: Same as the rest. There are a few bogs and ponds on the way through that are showing more color. This is private property, the owners allow access, but watch for logging trucks on weekdays. Be sure to have plenty of gas, survival stuff and food as this is the REAL boonies! If it's been raining or looks muddy don't try it with a car. We got through ok with our Saturn.

NH, ME Route 26, Upton, Maine, Lake Umbagog: showing slightly more color than elsewhere.

NH Route 110A from Dummer to West Milan: Same as the routes above.

NH Route 110 from West Milan through Stark to Groveton: Same as above.

NH Route 3, Groveton through Lancaster, Whitefield, Twin Mountain and Bethlehem to Franconia Notch: Some colorful individual trees next to the road, but still overall green.


NH Route 135 from Lancaster through Dalton, Littleton, Lyman, Monroe to Woodsville: Right at the Dalton/Littleton town line there are several maples in full color (red). Also at this point there is an excellent view of the mountains across the Connecticut River in Vermont that are showing some color. There are other trees scattered along Route 135 that are in color. We spotted a couple of cowmingos along the way, and a herd of deer.


NH Route 302 from Littleton through Lisbon and Bath to Woodsville: A little color showing overall and a few individual trees bright with color. (We were on the way to Hibbard House in Bath and Bread and Chocolate in Vermont for some pictures).

VT 302 from Wells River to VT I-91: Some color along the river.

VT 5 from Wells River to Barnet: Still mostly green.

NH 116 from Littleton through Bethlehem to Whitefield: Mostly green, a little color here and there.

NH 142 from Whitefield to Bethlehem: Some color beginning to show.

NHI-93 from Franconia Notch to Concord: Some color showing all the way, mostly still green though.

Hurricane Floyd left most of the leaves on the trees, but there's a couple of miles on the south end of Franconia Notch that had a high percentage of the leaves blown from the trees.


15 September:


NH: Route 3; Lancaster, Whitefield, Bethlehem, Twin Mountain: a few trees turning, mostly green.


Route 3, just north of I-93 exit 35: from 1/4 to 1/3 of the trees by the road turning colorful, less further from the road.

Franconia Notch: The birches and beeches starting to show a slight yellow tinge.

I-93 from Franconia Notch to Concord: A few individual trees turning.
15 September:

Victory, VT: a few trees turning, mostly green.


Route 2 across VT: Quite a few trees turning, but many still green. Apparently due to the lack of rain many of the leaves along route 2 are falling to the ground as soon as they turn. This is good and bad for viewing pleasure. There may be less leaves to see, but with some of the trees bare you have a better view of others. This is also good for photography as you can then actually see some of the beautiful old buildings in pictures combined with some pretty foliage.
