Southern Utah Fall Color 9/25/17

Cedar City • Brian Head Tourism Bureau has a new fall color report for  Sept. 25 to 30

High Elevation – Alpine
Brian Head, Cedar Breaks and Panguitch Lake
Percent of Change: MODERATE
Color Report: 
SNOW! The high elevation received snow this past weekend; so what does this mean for our fall colors? Well, the colder temperatures have effected the leaves that had already changed but there was still plenty of green to turn so expect this weekend to be peak for large areas in higher elevations.
Fall color expert and photography master, Mike Saemisch said that due to weather some of the colors are gone but more are on their way and the colors around Brian Head will probably hit peak this next weekend

Mid Elevation – Sub-Alpine
Parowan Canyon and Cedar Canyon Area
Percent of Change: LOW
Color Report: 
With colder temperatures more and more yellows and some reds are appearing, sprinkled throughout the mid elevation. Iron County Outdoor Recreation and Woods Ranch manager, Austin Mortensen, said there is still plenty of green in the mid elevation but the leaves are changing! Plan for peak to be around mid October. Keep checking back for up-to-date reports!

Low Elevation –  Cedar City and Kolob Canyons Area
Percent of Change: LOW

Color Report: Leaf experts are saying that with the colder temperatures over the past weekend a few trees are starting to show a little color in the lower elevations but to not expect drastic changes until later in October
