The New York Department of Economic Development released its first fall foliage report of 2018, and it looks like leaf-peeping season is almost upon us.

While most of the state is so far unchanged, small pockets of upstate New York are beginning to see some change, primarily in the Adirondacks, Capital-Saratoga, and Thousand Islands regions.

In the Thousand Islands region, Jefferson County and St. Lawrence County have experienced a 10-percent change, while Oswego County has seen a 5- to 10-percent change. Fulton County in the Capital-Saratoga have seen a 10- to 15-percent change.
