Autumn Leaves

This was a strange year for autumn leaves.  The summer was very dry with absolutely no rain during July and August.  The result was that some trees changed colors early and others were late.  I have divided the pictures by date, in some cases taking pictures at the same place with totally different colors over the period of a month.

This is the peak of color.  Below is a panorama of the northern side of Kissacook Hill.  As noted before, the yellow is birch, the red is maple, the green is mostly pine.

Another view of northern side of Kissacook Hill.

This is a bush near the Catholic Church, which is about a half mile from the base of Kissacook Hill.

These pictures are on the swamp of Reed Brook.  The northern side of Kissacook Hill can be seen.

This is the railroad about a mile to the south of Kissacook Hill.

These pictures are around the school yard to the north of Kissacook Hill.
