So Much to "Fall" for in Maine
Planning a fall foliage trip to Maine? Here's what you  need to know. The leaves
show their color first in the extreme north, then  in the western mountains and
central valleys, and lastly in eastern,  coastal and southern locations. When does
foliage reach its peak? That's up  to the weather, which can speed up or delay the
transformation of leaf  pigment due to a number of factors.

Memories of an Old Cider Mill in New Hampshire
Years ago it was common for a town to have its own cider mill. This was part of the
Yankee self-sufficiency of having a blacksmith shop, wheelwright, grist mill and
saw mill. Cider was important as a fresh juice, a base for vinegar, as well as the
occasional hard ciders and homebrews. It was a way to preserve apples, which
would spoil part way through the winter in the storage barrels in the root cellar.

The Covered Bridges of Vermont
Vermont is known to have the most covered bridges per square mile than any other
location in the world.  (It is second in total number of bridges to Pennsylvania.) You
can plan your search for covered bridges by the counties of Vermont.  There are 12
counties in the state, all of which have a few notable bridges.
