foliage in the Adirondacks is late September into early October. The progression of color change decreases steadily in elevation, until mid-to-late October when the Adirondack Coast of Lake Champlain and Lake George begin to shed the last of the season's vibrant colors.

Trust me Sid, living here, nothing stays the same from year to year. Sometimes fall is absolutely spectacular, other times, not so much. If nothing else, there's less sucking bugs around!
