In recent years, the fall foliage has been appearing later and later here in Upstate New York. Years ago, the Columbus Day weekend was close to peak, and it was nice (for those getting it as a holiday, which I don't) to have the weekend for a fall foliage trip. Or it was good timing for "last weekend of camping" outings. Those with second homes needing to close the second home up for the winter enjoyed lovely fall foliage at the same time.
Not any more.
With the wildflower season drawing to a close I was hoping my Saturday trip to Ithaca would yield some fall color. But, it was just starting. This was taken at one of the stops at this past weekend's Ithaca Art Trail. Yes, upstate NY Finger Lakes country at its best.
Since Saturday, the colors have started to pop, so stay tuned until next Wednesday.
