Dublin, New Hampshire (August 21, 2009)–Yankee Magazine’s September/October issue, on newsstands August 25, 2009, celebrates fall foliage and the rites of autumn in New England with a feature story on Vermont’s Route 100, the most scenic drive of all. Mouthwatering apple recipes, a peek inside the life of New England’s most fanatical leaf peeper, and 90 fall events are just a few of the highlights of the issue, which is bursting with color and the rituals of the season.

“Chasing peak color turns the brilliance of autumn into an always-futile chase,” says Mel Allen, Yankee’s editor. “Futile because peak color arrives on a continuum: Now you see it, now you don’t. But the essence of a New England fall is about becoming part of the continuum, not isolating it to one exuberant moment.”

    Where can I get a copy of the magazine that had the fisherman on the Saco River?
