Autumn Foliage Leaves in Sutton Massachusetts 2022 - with Douglas - 11/2/2022 12:44:15 AM

The foliage season is easing into soft rust colors. Here's the drive around town we did a few days ago.

This video starts in South Grafton on Maple, heading south. It goes right onto Goldthwaite, right onto Purgatatory, up to Central Turnpike. A quick left onto Uxbridge, then Mendon and down to Barrett. Left on Whitins, right on Lasell, right on Lackey Dam, and up 146 North. After the million-light intersection, we take a right onto Colonial, left onto Boston Road, and then right on Dodge Hill road.

Enjoy!
