Gheez! How I love autumn! I wanted to be everywhere in the Whites today, instantly, and all at once, to check out the foliage. However, it wasn't long before reality set in, and so I had to settle for just doing a quick check of a few locations (Table Mtn off Bear Notch Rd; Crawford Notch; Rocky Gorge area off the Kanc).

The bottom-line to today's adventures is that "peak foliage" hasn?t arrived yet in these particular locations, but it's getting there!:)

Below are 3 snapshots taken from Table Mountain.

Looking Southeasterly Down the Swift River Valley


Looking South Toward Chocorua, Paugus, etc


Looking Northwesterly Toward Bartlett Haystack, Tremont, Carrigain, etc
(A short bushwhack is required to get this particular view from Table Mtn.)


After finishing up Table Mountain, I took a short drive down to the Kanc to check out the foliage in the vicinity of Rocky Gorge.
Here I got my most colorful view of the day!


And, on my way back home, I did a bushwhack off the Dry River Trail up to a ledge that overlooks a portion of the Crawford Notch in the general vicinity of Mts. Crawford and Bemis. It appears that it will be awhile before "peak foliage" hits here.

Beautiful photos John. The colors are really developing nicely. Thanks for posting! I made the one from the vicintiy of Rocky Gorge my desktop background so I can sit here at work and make believe I was there instead.:)

Simply stunning photos. Autumn is a wonderful season, especially in New England. Guess, the foilage will peak in a week or so?

Beautiful John. So glad to see the color starting. Makes me even more anxious for the two weekends we've got coming up north!
