Adirondack Park Fall Foliage 2009

Trip log 22,785mi. - Today we went in search of fall foliage to photograph in the Stillwater Reservoir area of The Adirondack Park, located in Upstate New York. After having the van serviced in Watertown we headed up into the State Forest Preserve for a look at the colorful leaves. It rained most of the day, but that didn't deter us. This year autumn in Upstate New York appears to be a wet one, as unsettled weather is expected for the next several days, so if you want to catch the fall colors you may have to get out despite the rainy weather this fall.

Outside Watertown at the lower elevations the leaves were just starting to change colors.

Once we took the scenic drive up to higher elevations where it's cooler in Adirondack Park the fall foliage was much farther along.

Some spots like around Stillwater Reservoir at 1700' above sea level, were very close to their peak of fall colors only a week or so out.
