Carl Heilman II's Guide to Leaf Peeping: Stunning Photos & Where to Find Those Views
During the fall, you'll find beautiful, irreplaceable views from the Adirondack Park's mountains and lakes. Never been? In this guide, you will not only see Carl Heilman II's beautiful photographs, but he will share with you where the photo was taken, giving you different destinations to get the best views.
Carl gives his tips on when the best time is to discover fall foliage, and where you should go in the Adirondack Park:
"Fall colors are pretty much an elevation thing. Highest go first followed by the valleys and foothills. Typically colors start in the central High Peaks (Adk Loj area - 2000 to 3000 feet) around the last week of September and work out from there with nice overlap in a good season. Colors in Lake Placid / Keene Valley and other areas (1500 - 2000 feet) will generally be around the first week of October. Lower elevations toward the next week with latest being in the Champlain Valley / Lake George area near the third week of October or later - (100 to 1000 feet)."
