Chris Leadbeater, of the Daily Mail, just wrote a fantastic article on his recent New England fall foliage trip.
His writing, is no doubt, as colorful as the foliage leaves of New England, taking on almost a child-like awe of this special time of year in our region. Perfectly capturing the fall essence of the New England highways and byways, small quaint New Hampshire and Vermont towns (Woodstock and Grafton Vt., Jackson, N.H.) and scenic areas like the Berkshire County region of Massachusetts, Mt. Washington in New Hampshire and the Androscoggin River in Maine, reading this article makes one feel that they are alongside the traveler. The journey ends in Boston "where the leaves, stoked to an orange inferno around the perimeter of the Common, give an extra tint of majesty to the redbrick masonry and the shining dome of the Massachusetts State House." Beautiful writing, with detail that you don't always find in general New England fall foliage articles!
Fall foliage articles often take on the moment -- which Leadbeater does here -- but I have the feeling that when next years comes around, I'll be reading this article again. Great writing and New England fall foliage have that timeless effect, after all!
