Fall Foliage Report

Share this

It is already September 24, 2010 and the trees' leaves in Western New York are a changing colors quickly ... at least they are around Little Valley, New York.

From Becky's Fall Foilage report from Monday:

By the upcoming weekend, we expect to be at 20% change with red and yellow colors beginning to emerge.

Since the previous report, most of the people that contacted us, stated that the leaves in the Ellicottville area have changed awefully fast. I see it on my way in to work too as the hillsides are popping with colors in Mansfield, Little Valley, Ellicottville and Great Valley. Also, people have reported that other areas of the Enchanted Mountains haven't changed that much.

We want to hear from locals. What is the current status of the fall foilage in your neck of the woods? So please leave a comment below and/or send us some pictures.

Send us your photos of the trees in Cattaraugus County, add them to our Facebook images or add them to the Cattaraugus County Flickr group or email them to info [at] EnchantedMountains [dot] com .

Meaning of the word Cattaraugus

CATTARAUGUS, from a Seneca Indian word meaning “bad smelling banks,” referring to the odor of natural gas leaking from rock seams. http://www.dos.ny.gov/info/pdfs/countynames.pdf

The word "Cattaraugus" means "foul-smelling river bank." This name is a result of the natural gas that oozes from the river mud. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cattaraugus_Creek.

In our opinion, only some of the river banks are bad smelling. Come on over and visit a creek in Cattaraugus County and tell us what you think.
