It's that time of the year where the colors are changing and we will all act like we've never seen it before.

I guess watching the leaves change has become so popular that it even needs its own name. Viewing the fall foliage has become quite a staple here in Upstate New York. Here in the Hudson Valley it is about as much of a tradition as going to an apple orchard. In some cases you could probably get both done in one trip.

Leaf peeping is the term given to both residents and tourists of the Hudson Valley who go out of their way to see the leaves change and document it on social media. If you don't believe me just go on Instagram and search #leafpeepin. You'll see endless photos of foliage.

You can find a map of some foliage hot spots in the local area here.

Do you love the foliage? Where is the best place to leaf peep in the Hudson Valley?
