The best part about the fall in our area is the fall foliage, and the changes are coming.

According to ILOVENY.com the Hudson Valley is at its foliage mid-point. They say there will be " 40% transition and yellow, orange, and red leaves" in Dutchess County. While Goshen in Orange County and Hudson in Columbia County are at 35% transition.

The map above shows a quick road trip to the Catskills or Adirondacks will be a colorful one.

If we follow along with the foliage prediction map from earlier this season, it looks like we'll be in near/full peak within the next few weeks.

Where's your favorite foliage spot in the Hudson Valley? Mine is Minnewaska.
