New England is world renowned for its autumn colors and for good reason! In early October the mountains, lakes and rolling hillsides of New England are painted with hues of red, yellow, orange, green and magenta as the fall colors creep from the highest peaks to lower valleys and ponds.

The rugged coast of Maine also awaits us on this tour of the region with its small rocky harbors, working fishing villages, lighthouses and other staples of coastal life along the coast.

This workshop will cover both regions: the spectacular White Mountains National Forest & Mid Coast Maine.
