2020 Fall Color Updates – Click to Enlarge
Latest Update – 09/28/2020
This past weekend gave us some spectacular colors! This season it seems nearly all the valleys are mixed to a large extent with trees that have turned, and those that remain green. It may mean peak foliage may occur more in large groups, rather than a wider spread area. It also may mean some extra time to enjoy it all.
This week should continue to turn the remaining green patches in most areas, and the peak foliage spots start to lose their leaves. Kebler should be the next hotspot for the upcoming weekend. Happy Peeping!
