Cooler temps and scattered showers are in the forecast for much of New England this upcoming weekend, but don't let that put a damper on your autumn explorations! The northernmost regions of Maine will be sporting dazzling peak colors this weekend, and in New Hampshire's Great North Woods, a frost has accelerated the brightening of the leaves. Consider a drive through Moose Alley this weekend, and take advantage of last-minute specials at Tall Timber Lodge. Vermont is predicting mid-stage foliage in the Northeast Kingdom, so you'll see patches of color if you take your pup to the Dog Chapel).

Use my Leaf Alert guide to find online foliage reports for all of the New England states, plus neighboring New York, or call one of the region's toll-free hotlines for up-to-date foliage reports and forecasts before you hit the road this weekend. And be sure to make lodging reservations in advance if you'll be spending the night: Hotel availability is often scarce in New England as the leaves begin to peak.

Can't get away this weekend? As you'll see from the latest view outside my window, there's still much more fall color to come.
