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 also continue participation in this annual report.

leaf report week 3 2013

Kane Mountain, Caroga Lake week of September 24-October 1

Fulton County Report for the Week of September 24-October 1:

Reporting station: Fulton County Tourism Department, Gloversville

Percent of trees predicted to have changed by the coming weekend: 50-75%

Brilliance: Average to Bright

Predominating colors: Gold with green, higher elevations had a lot of red and orange

Rating: Midpoint to Near Peak

Continuing with my morning commute route, the lower elevations still have a lot of green and gold.  I am starting to see some red and orange; over the next week a lot more color should become visible.

In some higher elevations, there are already patchy spots missing leaves, but the prominent colors are red and orange.  It is a gorgeous view!  This weekend is a good time to get out for leaf peeping before the opportunity is missed.

The weather forecast is sunny and low 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, “Little Shop of Horrors” 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.
