I LOVE NY started the “New York Fall Foliage Report” on September 11 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.

Caroga Lake

Reporting station: Caroga Lake and Gloversville

Percent of trees predicted to have changed by the coming weekend:  60% in higher elevations, 40% in lower elevations

Brilliance: Average to Bright

Predominating colors: Yellow, orange with some greens and reds

Rating: Midpoint

Each week there is less green and more yellow, orange, and red appearing.  In higher elevations, like Caroga Lake, midpoint to near peak in certain spots is occurring.  With rain over the past week, trees that changed early are already losing their leaves.

Apples at Rogers Family Orchards

While checking out the near peak leaves in Caroga Lake this weekend, be sure to visit the Caroga Lake Volleyball Club Craft Fair at the Wheelerville School.  The craft fair runs from 2pm-7pm.  Additionally, a Roast Beef Dinner sponsored by the North Bush United Methodist Church will be held from 3pm-7pm.

It’s a great time to stock up on fall harvest decorations like pumpkins and gourds or go apple picking.  The Gloversville and Johnstown Farmers Markets will be ending soon for the season.  Take a harvest tour today!

Come and enjoy the colors of autumn and the many events Fulton County has to offer.
