We had about 10" or so. The last 2 weeks have really been the only really dry stretch (0.25"). Below average for sure, but not like it hasn't rained in months! 

Don't listen to him. Colors are popping here drought and all

PF- I keep thinking that the stones in your shots the past few days is snow.

 

Someone in Norwich does regular drone flyovers movies, he did one for the foliage yesterday.

Now that’s a real stuff.  I was about to tell you to go buy a DSLR if you didn’t have one there ;).  The view deserves a real piece of glass.

My wife realized she has been taking tons of pictures but we didn’t have one of the classic deck shot.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful New England foliage pics! Here in Upstate New York, the colors have rapidly been popping this past week...especially the last couple of days. Many places are going to be bare by Mid-October.

It was just a quick day - I arrived at 6:00 and left at 8:00.  Got things to do at home!  This early color change does not coincide with the days I took off from work.  I'll prob be up again on Friday trying to capture the train on its run through the notch

Diane,  it was nice to meet you today.  Beautiful car ride from my area in Plymouth through Franconia Notch to the Mt Washington Valley.  It was heavily overcast through Franconia Notch but with a downsloping south wind it was much brighter in your area with mostly just a high overcast.   I agree with you that you are slightly past peak.  The area from just north of Plymouth through Lincoln and into the notch was at a brilliant peak.  Probably the best foliage I have ever seen.  The lack of rainfall, wind and the drought seems to have made this an exceptional peak in NNE.  Wind and rain will bring down a lot of leaves this week.  Everything seems to be running a couple of weeks early.

My drone flight around Bretton Woods today.  Wish we had had bright sunshine

I've been to my fave spot in Crawford Notch for each of the past four years.  Here's the images and dates.  In particular, check out 2018 which was taken 4 calendar days earlier than today
