I LOVE NY started the “State’s Official Fall Foliage Color Reports” on September 12 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.
Our Fulton County Report for the Week of October 10-16:
Reporting station: Lapland Lake Nordic Vacation Center, Benson
Percent of trees predicted to have changed by the coming weekend: 100%.
Predominating colors: Gold, Red, Orange
Rating: just past Peak
Ann from Lapland Lake Nordic Vacation Center reported that all the leaves have changed and they are still bright and pretty. They are just past peak, but colors are still evident.
In the southern portion of Fulton County, I have noticed many of the leaves changing to bright autumn colors. Nonetheless there is still a lot of green intermingled. I have also seen many trees already losing their leaves which make for colorful lawns and leave piles. There is still time to see the remaining beauty of the fall but it is not going to last much longer.
Is it too early to remind you that Fulton Montgomery Snowmobile Trail maps are available?
