1.Whiteface Veteran's Memorial Highway #whiteface
The five-mile road from the Toll House to the summit costs $11 per vehicle and drive and $8 for each additional passenger, and there are plenty of spots to enjoy a picnic or even a restaurant to enjoy a meal.
2.Prospect Mountain #prospectmountain
Prospect Mountain also has road accessible to vehicles, making it another great road trip stop. At 2,030 feet, the summit provides gorgeous views of Lake George. The drive costs $10 per vehicle.
3.Thacher Park #thacherpark
It's not fall in the Capital Region until you visit Thacher Park. The easy hike up the Helderberg Escarpment will offer views of Albany, surrounding mountains and valleys.
4.Hunter Mountain scenic skyride #huntermountain
While other mountains provide roads to drive to the summit, if you visit Hunter Mountain, then you have to take the chairlift to the summit. On a clear day, you'll be able to see the Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts and the Green Mountains of Vermont.
5.Adirondak Loj Road #lojroad
Park your car (for free) on South Meadow Road and enjoy an easy hike up Van Hoevenberg Mountain, to Marcy Dam, or Mount Jo. Or just enjoy the drive on the road which is surrounded by trees.

Extra cozy fall look. Vintage hand knit Cowichan sweater layered over a vintage Champion Reverse Weave, topped off with a blaze orange watch cap. M-65 cargo pants (you thought it was just a jacket!?) completes the look. Being from Long Island, a lot of my friends went to state schools in upstate New York - Oneonta, Binghamton, New Paltz, Albany, etc. As a kid we used to drive up to catch hardcore shows in student centers or random off campus houses. This hoody (and of course the cargo pants 😂) definitely reminds me of that time. Classic type and colorway on one of the most iconic sweatshirts of all time. #woodensleepers#395vanbrunt#oneonta#sunyoneonta#suny#upstate#champion#reverseweave#cowichan#m65

A simple one in Upstate New York that’s ready for all you foliage peepers. La Petite Cabine in Narrowsburg, New York — main cabin sleeps 8, 2 bedrooms, 3 beds. The writers shack sleeps 1 - 2. link to book up top. Shot by @pbcrosby for an upcoming project by @thehostingmasterclass / @hellosarahandrews that I couldn’t be more excited about. #cabinlove#catskills#upstate#lapetitecabine (also, for those asking, there is another main structure and that’s where the rooms are, I just loved the writers shack and wanted to show that nugget 💛)
lost faces from long ago. from cliffs hardened and wise to rivers xanthic and ponderous, so distant in my memory they feel like daydreams. feeling a lot of nostalgia and a lot of some other feeling - call of the wild? whatever it is, my mind drifts to endless shoals and the granite-scapes of the Bartrams Bass habitat, freckled in the hills of South Carolina’s upstate. whatever you’re fishing for these days keep it up, and let the good times roll. enjoy this redeye throwback pic while you’re at it #redeyebass#bartramsbass#micropterus#sc#southcarolina#redeyebassfishing#upstate#nostalgia#multispecies#ultralightlovers

I think I dropped my home keys somewhere here.... mmm....
I’ve heard a lot of names, but I have to say, “Cornflake” has to be one on my favorites 😆 He’s pretty cute, too 😎

I took my mother and kids to @olanashs for their first time yesterday. We couldn't ask for a better day. The kids were impressed that I've been to many of the same places Fredrick Church had painted and could identify the locations in his work, and that we have some of the same dishes as are laid on his dining room table. I found the chocolate chip cookie of my dreams from @gracies_ny food truck. My mom was impressed with my beer recommendations for her at @chathambrewing. What a perfect day. #hudsonvalley#upstate#upstateamerica#upstateny#iloveny@iloveny

Titled “MOONRISE” by artist Beth Hoeckel, this print really sets the tone for the Wall St. Suite—does this make you wish moonrise watch parties were a thing? #HotelKinsley#AboutHotelKinsley
Find stillness in the moment, instead of waiting for life to slow down 🍂
I started this morning with my usual morning run, but ended up meditating outside for a few minutes. I know things can look one way on this app, but lately, I realize my mind has been going from one task/responsibility to another, with no pause in between. Which TBH can leave me feeling a bit drained some days.
But just those few moments of stillness, focusing on my breath, grounding myself, and taking in that crisp fall air, felt SO healing. The things that felt impossible to do, now feel attainable. And that's just from a few minutes of pause.✋🏿
If you can identify with how I've been feeling, I encourage you to take a mindful moment today however you can.✌🏿❤

Vitamin E's antioxidant properties repair damaged hair follicles, prevent tissue corrosion(aka balding) and helps build tissue. This keeps your follicles healthy and promotes healthy hair growth. Vitamin E promotes blood circulation and acts as a deep moisturizer for your hair, preventing breakage and brittle hair. And isn't that what we all strive for? Hair that is Moisturized, full from root to tip, manageable and luster full. Use your Black Magic Oil on the scalp and vitamin E oil to keep the ends of your hair to optimize your growth spurt. #tptips
