EXCLUSIVE: Very First 2016 Foliage In New Hampshire — July 31, 2016.
No mistaking it. You can see BOTH the green and red leaves on the same branches.
This was at the TOP of ‘Prospect Mountain‘ in Alton, New Hampshire. So there was some altitude. I didn’t have a GPS with me BUT I suspect it is probably at about 1,000′ given that we, at the bottom of that hill, are at 660′.
It is early but we have had some ‘cold’ nights following very toasty daytime temperatures.
