We were out at Branch Lake over the weekend and a few of the leaves were really starting to pop. So now that fall is officially here it really is time to start planning a few road trips to make the most out of Maine's most popular season for many.  

This is where the Maine foliage site come in very handy.  There not only can you see where the best color is on any given day of the month but there is also many fun facts. Some of these are scientific like why do leaves change color in the first place and what is the best way to preserve leaves for decoration. Then there are weekly reports and suggested routes for adventures tat offer the most spectacular views and colors. They even outline beer  and wine routes or hikes and orchards. So if you are looking to hop in the car and go in search of the best foliage click here first.

Here is a sneak peek.
