Fall in the Adirondacks

It’s a subtle shift in color that takes over. One morning you notice a grove of little maples along the road full of vibrant crimson, magenta and orange. Some of the bigger and older trees ease into their fall outfits, dressing in deepening shades of amber, a bit more dramatic each morning.

Fall is here in the Adirondacks, and with it so many of our favorite pastimes.

Grab yourself something pumpkin spiced, a cozy wool sweater and check out these Almanack Archive posts!
