As we wind down the "Frog Days Of Summer" and await the arrival of autumn, we realize that we live in one of the best areas to experience the colorful fall foliage. "Leaf peeping" as it's sometimes called has become quite a tourist attraction. Many of my "snowbird" Florida friends have told me that they don't have a fall foliage season in the "Sunshine State", and often return to their roots here in upstate New York for the view.

While it's a bit early for peak conditions, the Adirondack region is the first area to start showing its true fall colors. If you want to explore other areas in the state for some breathtaking "leaf peeping", you can click here for more information.
