New York Fall Foliage Reports Adirondacks Near Mid Color Change
Autumn begins on September 23 and already, New York State is out with its second Fall Foliage Report for 2019.
The Empire State Development Division of Tourism reports leaf-peepers will find foliage near midpoint of change already in the Adirondacks with Tupper Lake at 40% color transition. Observers in that region say fans of fall can find shades of deep red, orange and russet with red maples showing off in Saranac Lake with a leaf change of about 30%.
The Southern Tier observers in Binghamton anticipate 15% change with touches of muted red, yellow and bright green leaves. Reports can be found at www.iloveny.com/foliage.
The Division of Tourism has a team of volunteer Leaf Peepers throughout the state’s 11 vacation regions to keep track of the color range progress each week.
