2019 Fall Color Updates – Click to Enlarge

Latest Update – 10/10/2019

The snow came and went and left some spectacular scenes behind. Kebler and Ohio Passes had the best shows of the year, with bright golds, oranges, and reds contrasted with a blanket of fresh white snow. The rest of the valleys are now all but finished, but this weekend should provide a few more fall scenes, especially if you can view them Friday or Saturday morning.
