Fast Forwarding To Fall

New York State has just released its first fall Foliage report of the season – and it’s still summer!!!

But with autumn like temperatures and conditions in these parts, we can see why. In fact last week we may have spotted the first tree to "turn" here in Schroon – across the way from the Schroon Lake Shopping Mall, aka “The Dollar General.”

From the State’s website:

“…the first significant signs of spectacular fall colors are beginning to appear in the Adirondacks, Thousand Islands-Seaway, and Catskills regions, according to observers for the Empire State Development Division of Tourism's I LOVE NEW YORK program.

In the Adirondacks region, foliage spotters based in Lake Placid expect up to 20 percent color change by the weekend with brilliant patches of gold, yellow, orange and some scattered red leaves. Cool, crisp nights and sunny days are creating the components for a fantastic foliage season according to foliage spotters in the Tupper Lake/Mt. Arab areas of Franklin County. For the coming weekend they expect up to 20 percent color change with leaves of muted brilliance. Look for sporadic tones of burgundy, scarlet, ginger and goldenrod”.
