That top shot was taken September 27 on the Souadabscook Stream. Most trees are green, but the swamp(red) maple is blazing away.
A few days later we explored Hamilton and Hermon Ponds and caught these shots.
Most of the trees have turned, some have even lost their leaves. The undergrowth is still green though.
On October 12, while paddling on the Penobscot, we captured the opposite.
The shore of the Penobscot, graced with high walls tend to change later than many places. It was October 18th when we captured this picture.
By October 25th, most of the maples are bare, but the oak trees still had their foliage.
There is no one date for glorious foliage, but scenic vistas can be found from late September through late October, if you're will to search a bit.
