    don, some of the best NY spots for fall colors is in the catskills and the hudson valley. mohonk mountain, and the various NYC reservoirs are a few places that come to mind. PM me if you need further info.

    My wife and I went this weekend, hiked Mount Jo (the very steep trail) and Baxter. Colors were only at about 40%. Will be much better this coming weekend.

    There was pretty good color around places in the Adirondacks around September 23 (see attachment - McIntyre Range with Colden, Mt. Jo, and Indian Pass). The High Peaks can be tough because many of the deciduous trees grow at the lower elevations, with the higher elevations being more predominantly evergreens. The North facing slopes have more color because they do not get as much direct sunlight and stay cooler. There are also many trees showing color because of stress. They are just giving up and stopping their chlorophyll process so their color is not really an indication of a true fall color event.

    If you want to come farther East colors will be absolute peak this weekend in Vermont's Northern Kingdom and New Hampsihre's North Country. We're doing a Fine Foliage Workshop there this weekend. Send me a PM if you want some directions to drop by.

    Looks like the Northeast Kingdom and the higher elevations of the Green Mountains will be starting to peak this weekend according the the site...
