Lately, my New Hampshire roots have ached to see some fall foliage. Growing up, I grew accustomed to the leaves’ seasonal change of color from green to a mix of burnt orange, brown, and red. Moving to the city helped me realize what a beautiful process this is, and what a privilege it was to have a front row seat. (And that, yes, surprisingly, people do vacation to New Hampshire to witness this).
The ideal time window for peepers is generally said to be late September to mid November, though it depends where exactly you live. Since there’s a bit of time left, why not hop on the Subway and partake in one of fall’s most enjoyable – and free – past-times?
