CONCORD, N.H. - New Hampshire tourism officials say frost in the Great North Woods region has sharpened the colours and brought that area up to 60 per cent of peak fall foliage.

By contrast, they say, the seacoast remains green for the most part, although swamp maples and yellow birches there are starting to change colour.

They say the White Mountains region is at about 40 per centcolour change, and the Kancamagus Highway is dappled with bold red and deep orange leaves.

The Dartmouth-Lake Sunapee region is expected to be at 40 per cent of colour change by the weekend.

The Monadnock and Merrimack Valley regions are at about 15 per centcolour change, but could reach 40 per cent by the weekend with one more cold night.
