Autumn in the Adirondacks

Autumn in the Adirondacks

Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all. — Stanley Horowitz

While it’s sad to see the summer season end, it is also very exciting to anticipate autumn ahead of us! For most of us, a few special things come to mind when we think of this season – cider, apples, crisp air, fall festivals, and colorful leaves! The peak season of fall foliage during late September and early October in the Adirondacks is absolutely breathtaking. The great thing is that everyone can enjoy the colors; whether it be a scenic drive, short hike, or backcountry excursion… your choice. While most of us enjoy simply taking in the view, many also find enjoyment in capturing these scenes of nature. As an avid photographer/videographer myself, I always look forward to exploring the Adirondacks and sharing the images I capture with our readers and online community. Below is a reel of footage I captured across the Adirondacks during the peak of foliage a couple of years ago:


If you're interested in sharing your colorful fall photos with us, please post them across the social networks using the hashtag #ADKautumn. And to get an update on the 2019 Fall Foliage Report, check for updates on the ILOVENY website, which includes a map showing the progress of leaf color changes across the Adirondacks and the rest of New York State.
