It's that time of year! Leaf peepers are about to get their fill of color changing trees throughout the state. iloveny.com issues weekly fall foliage reports. They are updated every Wednesday and provide a state map view and details on color change in individual regions. For example, this week in the Capital-Saratoga region:
Fulton County observers at Lapland Lake Nordic Vacation Center in Northville anticipate 20-25% color change by the weekend with areas of red and touches of orange-yellow appearing. In Gloversville, expect 10% color change with subdued shades of yellow and red appearing. Foliage observers reporting from Rensselaer County anticipate 10-15% color change this weekend with some brilliant patches of deep red, light yellow, and orange showing on some trees and shrubs. In Albany County, reports from Thacher State Park in Voorheesville expect 5-10% color change this weekend with average-to-bright touches of yellow. Expect 5-10% color change this weekend around Cohoes with yellow leaves of average brilliance. In Saratoga County, look for up to 10% color change this weekend with a mix of fall hues emerging.
