You just never know what Mother Nature will provide. There is a decent chance the trees may start to turn by then. Peak weeks are usually around Columbus Day. We have had a lot of rain this week. Sometimes when it is a dry spell, with cool mornings, the colors change early. We are just getting green grass back after no rain for the entire Summer. Take an inland tour up to Freeport from Portland and you may see some color on the way as it is just North. Take a trolley tour at Boston to see all of the historic sites.
