Peak colors for Columbus Day

7 years ago

The warm muted tones of autumn stand out in the background against the cool greens of the golf course in Fort Kent on Oct. 5.

The fall foliage report from the Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry indicates peak colors are in store for the upcoming Columbus Day weekend in northern Maine, with 70 percent or better color change already on display. The rest of the state, meanwhile, is at 40 to 50 percent color change. Low leaf drop also is reported statewide.
