Fall Foliage – One of the Best in Years

October 18, 2016

WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE FOREST?

This might be one of the best fall foliage seasons I have seen. When I crossed over into Narrow Notch & into South Kortright, Delaware County, the sugar maples still had all their golden leaves & the red maples had their red leaves too, last Saturday afternoon. The leaves here in Arkville – as I type these words – can be heard falling from the trees outside our office. However, they are peaking now at my house in Samsonville (central Ulster County). Even the white oak is a beautiful russet color too.
