Catskills now past peak fall foliage

Oct 21, 2016 12:08 am
New York's State's latest fall foliage report is out:

"The Catskills region will see a mix of peak and past peak foliage this weekend.... Spotters reporting from Kingston in Ulster County predict peak foliage this weekend with 80 percent color change. Predominating colors include yellow, deep burgundy and hints of brighter orange, and some salmon color. Very little green remains as a backdrop. At Belleayre Mountain in Highmount, foliage will be just past peak. The ride up to the mountain from Kingston still has some beautiful leaf peeping opportunities with leaves of orange, gold, red and yellow. Spotters in Catskill, in Greene County, expect just past peak leaves this weekend with still extremely vibrant shades of red, yellow and orange. Foliage above 2000’ in the county is now past peak; look for brilliant red and yellow leaves. Delaware County will be past peak. Look for yellow and gold leaves of muted brilliance."
