ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Leaf peeping season is starting in parts of New York state.

State tourism officials say trees in parts of the Adirondacks have begun to turn, with as much as 15 percent foliage-color change by this weekend. For instance, officials expect about 15 percent color change in elevations above 2,000 feet in Warren County, including the Upper Hudson River Gorge, Blue Mountain, North Creek and Newcomb.

There also will be color showing in parts of the Catskills region, such as Saugerties.

The rest of the state is expected to see 10 percent or less color change.
