Default Foliage Flight - Northeast - Mid October

I try to fly up to Maine every year on a foliage flight. But for various reasons I haven't done it in four years! This year I made it, flying up from Maryland to central Maine one day and coming back the next. I nailed it; the foliage was simply awesome through western Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and central Maine. Plus I got to see Mount Washington, Mount Katahdin and Acadia National Park for the first time. And of course, the Maine coast is always spectacular. I took way too many pictures as always. Enjoy!

Very nice, Bill. Fantastic report and photos, as always!

Of note, according to Kathrynsreport, N425AD, 09/11/2022, electrical failure on takeoff at Wiscasset, returned and gear collapsed on landing. My guess is composite propellers.

Best regards,

Merrill

Great pics, thanks for posting! We were neighbors in the early '70s...Mt. Vernon HS 1978.

Great shots Claw ! Yes, you timed it right on the foliage. I've been to all of those sites by land yacht as well. Beware of Mt Washington - rapid severe WX changes can occur. Highest sustained wind ever recorded there was 200 mph ! Think of your potential ground speeds with a tail wind !

Thank you for documenting your RV life. Your flights have been an inspiration and often a guide for many of the flights I have taken.
