Jim Salge the new Yankee foliage blogger

Jim Salge is a nature photographer based in Southern New Hampshire, who uses his background in the sciences to inspire his art. A former meteorologist at the Mount Washington Observatory, he is a keen observer of the progression of the seasons in New England. He uses his knowledge of weather, geography and climate to pinpoint the best time to visit a location for the best light, atmosphere, and most importantly, color.

Jim has a deep routed appreciation for the nature and the wilderness, which has manifested itself into numerous outdoor pursuits. He spends his free time exploring the New England landscape, often beginning before dawn, and staying out after sunset, immersing himself in the ecology of the natural environment. He has long enjoyed hiking, fly fishing, mountain biking and cross country skiing, but now plans these activities to compliment his photography.

Jim now joins Yankee Magazine as the foliage forecaster and blogger, and looks to share his experiences, knowledge, locations and routes this season.

    Jim, welcome! Very much looking forward to your updates and forecasts! Although I am not a New Englander by birth, I fell in love with the beautiful region years ago on my first trip to enjoy the spectacular fall foliage, and has now become an annual treat!

    Jim, congratulations on this exciting opportunity! I am looking forward to following your adventures via this medium! Hopefully I will enjoy a beautiful taste of New Hampshire and the Whites, especially, now that I have moved to Maine.

    We are retired with very flexable dates to be there. If we drive vs fly it will add ovr 2000 miles , however we won’t be tied to an airline departure date and can stay as long as it takes to be there for the peek. Should we fly, and plan to be there the first week of October and maby a day or two into the second week are we likely to catch the peek?

    Dear Jim,

    My husband and I are planing a trip to VT on the week of 5 of October for the first time since I moved to the US from Brazil 10 year ago. I am very excited about. We are flying to Burlington and from there, no idea of where to go. Can you or someone gives some recommendations of routes and towns to go from there? We have no idea of where to start.

    Thank you,

      Areas like Stowe, Peacham, Smugglers Notch, and Groton State Forest are all classic places to visit. A bit further south, Woodstock is a great town to visit as well. But, you’ll also love the Burlington area, it’s a great city! Have fun!
