Fall Foliage

EOF_webFeature_FallFoliageWhen you think of fall, the first thing that comes to mind is the beautiful combinations of colors in the soon to be falling leaves. Each leaf a different shade of orange, red and yellow can be found in the Adirondacks. The peak of the fall season is late September & early October when those vibrate colors are covering every mountain and valley through the entire Adirondack Park.
