We are delighted to report that our foliage expert, Jim Salge, will be returning for the 2017 foliage season to provide NewEngland.com readers with weekly foliage updates beginning on Thursday, August 17th.
As a former meteorologist at the Mount Washington Observatory, Jim is a keen observer of the progression of the seasons in New England. He’ll use his knowledge of weather, geography and climate to pinpoint the best time to visit various New England locations to find the best light, atmosphere, and most importantly, color.
Jim has a deep routed appreciation for the nature and the wilderness, which has manifested itself into numerous outdoor pursuits. He spends his free time exploring the New England landscape, often beginning before dawn, and staying out after sunset, immersing himself in the ecology of the natural environment. He has long enjoyed hiking, fly fishing, mountain biking and cross country skiing, but now plans these activities to complement his photography.
We are looking forward to another wonderful, colorful fall foliage season in New England. Stay tuned!
