The Great Drive & Leaf Peeping:
September and October are most picturesque month of the year. The maples, beeches and other hardwoods close out the season, not with a whimper, but with a blaze of glory. Reds, yellows, oranges and other various shades mix with the greens of the pines, spruce and balsam to present the visitor and resident alike eye pleasing vistas. While other areas boast of the vibrant colors, the Adirondacks actually have them. Peak color in the Long Lake and Raquette Lake area is generally a little earlier than many other areas with mid September into early October presenting the visitor with the most color.
