Let's take a look at the fall foliage report for this week, October 9th - October 15th, for the state of Maine.
This week we are seeing the peak foliage for this season across much of the State of Maine. From Fryeburg, Augusta, Bangor, Millinocket, Houlton and north, we are seeing the peak of color with a 70 - 100% color change. Areas along the coast and further Downeast are nearing the peak of foliage.
The peak week for the Bangor area to check out the best and brightest foliage viewing is predicted to be somewhere near October 15th - 20th.
