Columbus Day weekend is usually the peak of foliage season in New Hampshire's Mount Washington Valley, and this year Mother Nature is doing her best to cooperate. Marti Mayne, spokeswoman for the Mount Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce in North Conway, tells us that as of Thursday, vistas from Pinkham and Crawford notches to North Conway are alive with reds, yellows, and oranges. Mount Washington even has a fresh blanket of snow on it, providing a frosty backdrop. The Mount Washington Observatory's weather forecast calls for sunny to partly sunny days through Sunday, and a partly cloudy day on Monday - perfect weather in which to ramble. Before you go, check out an interactive foliage map for prime leaf peeping.
