Continue checking back for updates and changing leaves in the mid elevation.

Color Report: The cooler weather along with rain and wind has really helping the leaves in the lower elevations start to change. Small glimmers of color are starting to appear with some reds and oranges as well as yellows sprinkled throughout. More color can be expected mid to late October. Be sure to check in often to check the status of our golden yellows, bright oranges and fiery reds as the temperatures cool and the leaves change.
