While the fall in Montana is something worth seeing, nothing compares to an autumn in the western mountains of Maine, where I grew up. The seasons in this neck of the woods are so glorious that locals even have a name for the tourists that visit to see the fall foliage: Leaf Peepers. And thanks to the wonders of drone technology, I can go leaf peeping in my old stomping grounds right here in my sweatpants. Here’s a great video for a Monday morning in October, and a little eye bleach for anyone who had to sit through that grueling presidential debate last night. The Rangeley lakes region of western Maine is home to some of the most celebrated lake fishing in the state, and from the air you can see why fall is such a special time to visit. Enjoy.
|The drive into the town of Rangeley will have your head on a swivel.
Mostly to look out for the moose that cross the road so often, but the views are something else as well.
