Fall foliage maps and reports

autumn leavesEverybody loves some good fall foliage. So it's probably not surprising there are a bunch of fall foliage maps and reports.

Here are a few that might be useful for planning walks, hikes and drives, and weekends over the next month or so.

+ Yankee Magazine has a great foliage map that's built using reports from "foliage ambassadors." If you'd like to engage in foliage diplomacy, you can sign up.

+ I Love NY, The New York tourism site, has a good map -- but its text report of conditions is extensive.

+ A site called the Foliage Network has maps based on reports, but they're not very fine grained. But the site does include a "leaf drop report" -- which we didn't see anywhere else.

+ And there's a site dedicated to Vermont foliage called -- surprise! -- Foliage Vermont. It has a "best bets" report for the Green Mountain state.

Or, of course, you could just look out your window. Higher elevations tend to change sooner. So places like the Adirondacks and Catskills are usually a week or two ahead of places such as Albany.

Here's more about the science, from the National Forest Service.

I know why I take the bus more - because it's easier to take now! Busplus from Schenec to Albany gives me a nice relaxing ride and I can do work or read my book, I basically gain an extra hour of my life. Can't wait for the navigator cards to ramp up. Much better than those ten trips.
