When the calendar slips into September, people in Aroostook can start to feel – and even smell – the oncoming fall season. While residents of Aroostook are known for spending their autumns harvesting the bountiful potato crop, fall in The County means so much more than potatoes. As the temperature drops, mother nature comes out to play. Leaves on trees change from green to ride red and brilliant yellow.
As any local will tell you, the best way to see these colors is on the back of an ATV. But make sure to hop off your ATV and walk around Northern Maine’s majestic forests. There really isn’t anything like hearing that “crunch, crunch” of leaves under foot.
