The Dartmouth-Sunapee Region has quickly gone from peak to past peak, thanks to the first seasonably cold weather we have had this since spring. This means the deeper colors -like burgundy and bronze - are left behind on some trees, while others have dropped their leaves (still a pretty sight) or stand mostly bare. That's not to say there isn't color though. The colors is still spotty in some locations. Go up to Hanover, visit Dartmouth College and its historic architecture, grab a bite to eat at any of the to-die-for restaurants (ask the students where to go) and finish with gelato from Morano Gelato.
