Camp Driftwood. Autumn at Driftwood

Previous. Next.
The best foliage display in the world awaits autumn's visitors. Red maples inaugurate the grand show, followed through the forest by the oranges and yellows of the sugar maples, birch, poplar and ash. Every day is a unique spectacle, and overcast weather only makes the colors appear more vibrant.

Fall colors aren't all there is. Rafting, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, and boating also continue through the fall with nature's spectacular show as an ever-changing backdrop.

The Adirondack Antique Show and the Adirondack Museum Rustic Furniture Show highlight a calendar filled with major area events every weekend through Columbus Day.

As the huge flights of Canada Geese pass overhead and the leaves finally give way, only the tamaracks remain as ghostly yellow sentinels in the bare woods. Views open up, and countless new vistas are exposed. The late fall, after the leaves are gone, provides some of the best opportunities of the year for a walk in the woods.

This special time of the year is one of our "hidden seasons" - few other visitors compete for accommodations, but the weather can be great, the bugs are long gone, the lakes are still, and the quality of light is dramatic.
