I LOVE NY started their Fall Foliage Reports on September 11 and will continue until the end of the foliage season, around the first or second week in November. Fulton County will participate in this annual report.
Our Fulton County Report for the Week of September 18-24:
Reporting station: Fulton County Tourism Department, Gloversville
Percent of trees predicted to have changed by the coming weekend: 25% or more
Predominating colors: Gold with green, touches of red and brown
Rating: Just Beginning
My morning drive took me through the Broadalbin-Perth area into Gloversville. The tree lined roads are always picturesque in the morning sun, but when the leaves start to change to autumn colors it is always a little more special. The crisp mornings are a reminder that many fall events are happening and the Adirondacks are a great place to see the foliage change.
The variety of colors is just starting to show. Many trees have a yellow and gold color to them. Some have a brownish red peeking through. At this point, very few have orange or any deep vibrant colors. Within the next two weeks, we should see a brilliance of color and reach peak leaf peeping.
The mountain views showcase a progressive timeline in the change of colors. The higher elevations tend to change slightly earlier. If enjoying scenic rides through Fulton County, expect to visit the higher elevations a few days earlier than lower elevations.
