"They're vibrant this year because we've had a lot of really nice, clear days and cold nights - and those are two really important ingredients for maximum fall color," said ESF's Dr. Donald Leopold.

Leopold also said the outlook for the fall foliage wasn't nearly so bright just a few months ago. "The summer and July was very wet and that's not good for fall color," Leopold explained.

But a cool August made up for the soggy summer, and it even coaxed the leaves to turn a little earlier this year. The color in Central New York may peak this weekend (Oct. 18 and 19).

Leopold said some of the best places to admire the fall foliage are close to home. Green Lakes and Clark Reservation state parks are among his favorites
