I took a mental health day to run up to the White Mountains to see the foliage. Probably the best decision of the month!
The light shining through the leaves! I was originally going to hike up a Presidential but they were already past their peak foliage (only the southern Whites were at peak). I ended up popping up to Lonesome Lake and then hiking around the Flume.
It felt like walking through a golden wonderland. It was so gorgeous!
And I finally snapped a shot of a chipmunk! I’d been trying to do this for ages – I’m really happy with this one.
The lights through the trees near the Lafayette campgrounds.
The yellow leaves were lovely!
But the red ones are my favorite.
A fully turned tree and a tree just starting to turn!
A mountain just barely past peak foliage! I passed a few right at peak foliage when driving, but I couldn’t find a safe spot to pull over to take pictures (and I would really need a wide-angle lens to do them justice, too.)
In the parking lot of the Flume! It was so beautiful!
If you’ve got the time, there’s still a few days left at peak foliage in the southern Whites – I’d highly recommend going for at least a drive if you can. My pictures don’t do the mountains justice!
