We are traveling into Buffalo and want to do a fall color tour. We will leave Buffalo on October 8th and need to return on the 13th. The #1 priority is to photograph the fall colors and the New York countryside. We have planned a stop for one night in the fingerlakes region and then plan to head into the Adirondacks. Is that enough time to explore the fingerlakes?
The dilema is where to stay once we are there. We are much more inclined to be in a secluded rustic area vs. touristy location however, we would like to stay in one place as our home base and explore from there. Given the fact that we can not predict where the peak fall foliage will be located, would you recommend Indian Lake and the Blue Lake area or Lake George because of it's proximity to vermont and other fall foliage viewing areas? Or do you have another suggestion all together? We are open. Thank you in advance for all of your help.
