    Our latest blog post, about Acadia’s fall foliage, includes a link to this Backpacker Magazine article. While the foliage in Acadia isn’t peak yet, it’s getting there. Read our post to find out who else rates Acadia’s foliage highly (one hint: she’s a well-known domestic diva), and link to an Acadia web cam and official Maine foliage Web site, to keep up to date on the park’s colors: http://acadiaonmymind.com/2014/10/fall-foliage-acadia-national-park-leaf-peepers-delight/

    You forgot Dolly Sods, WV! It’s one of he few places in the Mid Atlantic areas to start changing first. (along with Cranesville Swamp, Cranberry Swamp (both in Maryland), and the Laurel Region of Pennsylvania- particularly Mt. Davis and the Ohiopyle regions.
