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.
