NH foliage nearing peak in northern most areas

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire tourism officials say the fall foliage is most vibrant and near peak in the Great North Woods around Pittsburg.

Tourism officials say the Pittsburg mountains near the Canadian border are at 75 percent peak foliage — a level matched only by Jefferson and Lincoln in the White Mountains.

The second weekly foliage forecast says Berlin, Gorham and Dixville Notch are at 50 percent peak foliage.

The Dartmouth-Lake Sunapee and Winnipesaukee regions have patches that are at 25 percent of peak.

The southern and seacoast areas of the state are mostly seeing 10-25 percent peak.

The state Division of Travel and Tourism is predicting that about 7.8 million visitors will visit the state by the end of November, buoyed by a stronger economy and lower gas prices.
