Second Report - Autumn Colours
The drive from Flatlands to Campbellton both on route 11 and 134 through Tide Head there is only an occasional tree with some colour but no bright ones as of yet.
In Kouchibouguac National Park, a little less than 5% of the leaves are sporting their autumn colours. Along the park road or the Highway 117, several maple trees, especially those closer to water courses, have started changing colours. Changes are still minimal, but it won't be long before they are more pronounced.
Travelling through Kings & Queens County the ash and willows are showing a change to yellow leaves along with the marsh grasses on the banks of the Kennebecasis River along route 121 from Apohaqui to Hampton. There are plenty of brown tops on the ever familiar cattails and the purple asters are in full bloom everywhere.
From the Fundy Trail, through St. Martins, west on Hwy 111 to the Saint John Airport, you can see the trees changing their colors slowly but definitely. On up Hwy 111, east from St. Martins to Sussex, hills and fields are showing signs of winter's coming approach.
