The Black Cottonwoods, Maples and Oaks around Quincy are still mostly green, and if you can’t drive to higher elevations to enjoy the fall colors underway there, you can still find lots of colorful sights in the woods around Quincy, especially if you hike in shady areas and/or where there’s running water…. Finally, the Mountain Ash is growing wild in Bucks Wilderness among other places in the 5,000 to 6,500 foot range, the best one I ever saw is growing right next to the courthouse in Quincy. Dont forget to enjoy the colorful bugs that are visiting the late summer wildflowers like Rabbitbrush and Goldenrod.
