Enchanted Mountains Fall Foliage Report for the weekend of September 18th, 2020

Share this

The Fall colors are beginning to change in the Enchanted Mountains, especially in the higher elevations. You will see mostly green but with pops of orange and red.  We estimate the change is about 15% but the next few nights will be cold and we expect the leaves to change quickly then.

This time of year is lovely with so many things to do but we have put together this blog of autumn Activities You'll Fall in Love With.

2020 has been a challenge, for sure, but there are still so many ways to have a good time. A long drive to take in the scenery and beautiful fall foliage is the perfect way.

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.
