DUBLIN, New Hampshire (August 22, 2007) —Yankee Magazine’s September/October issue features more than 100 ways to enjoy autumn in New England. Foliage takes top billing this fall, and Yankee offers the best ways to enjoy the landscape. Yankee also examines the benefits of eating local and fresh, a movement that’s gaining momentum across New England. The current issue is available where magazines are sold on August 28, 2007, and costs $3.99.”Our job at Yankee is to remind our readers that fall is much more than a chance to capture peak color,” said Editor Mel Allen. “The magic of a New England fall lies in the shadings — all the colors in between the exuberant scarlets and crimsons.”FALL FOLIAGEFoliage Drives in Vermont (p. 36): Yankee travels to Lamoille County, Vermont, to explore the spectacular foliage you can view on two back-road drives.
