Follow the Yellow Leaf Road

September 4, 2015

Autumn on the Adirondack Coast is characterized by sun-baked days and cool, crisp nights. Flaming reds, oranges and golds – the Adirondack Coast’s signature colors of fall – help make this, what is often described as, the most beautiful time of year. Watch the progression of color change as it slowly moves down in elevation, beginning in mid-September in the Adirondack High Peak region through mid-to-late October along Lake Champlain. I encourage you to follow the yellow leaf road, which will lead you to nonstop fun and adventure on the Adirondack Coast to places like:
