Mid October Trip to Western Maine
My wife and I are having a weekend away in Western Maine - actually attending a family wedding. The weather started out cloudy and raining on Friday (Oct 14, 2011) but we woke up to a cool but nice day on Saturday morning. It is partly cloudy and we have a good view of the Western Maine mountains from our hotel room. We are staying at the Jordan Grand Hotel which is part of the Sunday River Resort in Newry, Maine. The fall foliage here is pretty - not as nice as some years past - (due to a wet August and September and Hurricane Irene) but nice enough. I don't know if it has "peaked" or not but it is pretty near or just past "peaked".
