I made a point on my run up (and down) Prospect Mountain Road today to check on the foliage. It is a good, representative, rural N.H. dirt road when it comes to trees and vegetation. Plus, from the near the top I can see for miles across a beautiful vista of Belknap mountain hills. 99% green. Some dead branches. Just one tree, in a stand of three, where about 80% tree was a deep, rich maroon. That was at the edge of the Taylor (Blackberry) Farm. It was on this road that I spotted real foliage at the start of August last year.
The near ubiquitous Stag’s Horns around here, as shown in this picture, are getting orangy tips. Cute.
So that is about it. Not running tomorrow. My day off. But, I will, per my brief as a Foliage Updater keep you posted. I think, judging from what I saw in Gilford Saturday, that foliage will be upon us in Alton quickly.
