I chose to update this post as I believe now, October 5th, we are at Peak color. The drive up 201 has to be incredible right now. Here are a couple photos of our cabins and one of the mountains across the lake from us.
It has been a slow start to the colors of Fall this year. Of course driving up US route 201, I believe the changes started a bit sooner since it is a higher elevation.
Then earlier this week, we had a couple hard frosts and then rain and wallah! It started changing seemingly overnight.
Our favorite red maple in front of Zakopane is almost full bloom as are the oranges and yellows that I can see along the shoreline.
I estimate peak foliage to be by the end of next week.
