I LOVE NY started the “New York Fall Foliage Report” on September 10 and will continue until the end of the foliage season, around the first or second week in November. Fulton County has its own “foliage spotters” to participate in this annual report.
Reporting station: Southern Adirondack Pines Campground & Cabins, Pine Lake (Adirondack Park) and Gloversville
Percent of trees predicted to have changed by the coming weekend: 50% in higher elevations and 40% lower elevations
Predominating colors: Yellows, Oranges, Reds… still patchy in some locations but the green that remains have a yellow or rust tint.
According to Dave at Southern Adirondack Pines, “The colors are coming on strong and we’ll be at mid-peak by the weekend. There are a lot of yellows, rusty reds and large patches of bright red highlights. The remaining greens are nearly gone & the colors are getting quite vibrant. The drive up Route 29A from Johnstown/Gloversville to the north end of Fulton County is beautiful.” Others have reported that the leaves at West Lake and Canada Lake are a “perfect backdrop”.
The weather forecast is sunny and mid-70s. In the coming week, if we get any rain it may take that opportunity away.
Come stay for the weekend… the farm markets are open, “The Addams Family” is at The Glove Performing Arts Center, and Fulton County’s Day at the Farm is on Sunday. Visit our calendar to help plan your autumn getaway.
FREE Harvest Tour, Route 29A Chain of Lakes, and Great Sacandaga Lake informational maps are available.
