Here are a couple of photos shot by Kelly McInnis, who is a high school classmate of mine and an amateur photographer. I’m not sure where the top shot was taken, but the bottom one was shot at Echo Lake, which is in Aroostook State Park near Presque Isle, Maine. Click on either photo to get a slightly larger view.

Here’s a map and links for those interested in a last-minute trip to Maine for the peak of colors.
