Today we are continuing our weekly Foliage Friday series, celebrating Autumn in the Adirondacks. Each week we are featuring some of the amazing photos shared with us on Instagram showcasing fall colors in Adirondack communities, wilderness and water. Tag us in your Adirondack foliage photos on Instagram at @AdirondackCouncil to be featured next week!

Adirondack Foliage Update

It says it is September on the calendar, but the weather is telling us that it is summer this week. Today, the temps are back down to fall temps. In the Champlain region, we've noticed that the foliage seems to have "paused" with the warm weather. However, our friends in the Saranac Lake and Old Forge areas have seen a lot of color. Perhaps this warmer weather will extend the fall colors? Time will tell.

Foliage Fact:

Did you know that fall colors are not just for hardwoods? The Tamarack tree also sheds its needles each year. Tamaracks turn a vibrant golden color and eventually lose all of its needles leaving the tree bare. A great place to spot Tamaracks changing color is at the Paul Smith's VIC, and our Deputy Director Diane Fish recently shared a few great shots of changing Tamaracks at Boreas Ponds! 

Check out the great shots of this week's color display below!
