Timing a Fall trip to White Mts, planning now....
I have a friend from NZ who is doing a 3 month tour in the US/Canada in Aug/Sep/Oct. If the NE was included, I think it would be best to try and catch the fall foliage.
I have two general approach routes for him:
A. Coming from the Niagara area, heading east across the various states, aiming for Conway/White Mountains at the right time.
B. Coming from New Brunswick/Nova Scotia, thru Maine and across to Conway (I did this by car a few years ago and it was absolutely stunning - hundreds and hundreds of miles of intense colors).
My question is: in setting a general time now which they'll be able to vary a bit when they are on the road, what would you say is the "target" week to aim for at this planning stage?
Having lived here 9 years, I know it varies year-to-year, but what is the generally accepted target date for the White Mountains?
