Predominating colors: Some green with more yellows, oranges and reds coming through
Rating: Beginning to Midpoint
The leaves are nearing the midpoint with more color showing this week in some locations and still predominantly green in other spots.
Visit Johnson Hall State Historic Site this weekend for the New York State Path Through History weekend. “Hunting and Harvesting; Preparing for Winter in the 18th Century” will take visitors on a journey back to the 18th century to experience what it was like to hunt, harvest and preserve enough food to last the cold and harsh winters. 18th century hunting and harvesting equipment will be on display as interpreters provide a firsthand look at the tools and labor required to achieve the task. Despite all the preparation, equipment and labor, each winter brought the same unnerving question for some: will there be enough food to last until spring?
The event runs Saturday, October 6 from 11am-4pm and admission is $4.00 Adults, $3.00 Senior Citizens and Students, Children 12 and under Free.
On Sunday, October 7, the Sacandaga Valley Arts Network presents Toby Walker.
