Dear Friend,

The I Love NY Fall Foliage Report this week displays six leaf color stages--from no change to past peak.

In other words, this is the ideal time to venture out to the many leaf-peeping hot spots throughout New York. Whether it's a road trip to one of our magnificent state parks or your favorite local trail, I hope you find that special place to take in and appreciate one of nature's most spectacular annual displays.

Happy fall!

Robin Dropkin
Executive Director
