Southern Utah Fall Color 10/13/17

Cedar City • Brian Head Tourism Bureau has a new fall color report for October 13th to 17th

High Elevation – Alpine
Brian Head, Cedar Breaks and Panguitch Lake
Percent of Change: PAST PEAK
Color Report:
With the cold temperatures and the wind the fall leaves in the high elevation are gone. Enjoy the leaves in the mid and low elevations while they last! Come back next year

Mid Elevation – Sub-Alpine
Parowan Canyon and Cedar Canyon Area
Percent of Change: PEAK
Color Report:
It has been a strange year for leaf peepers, early frost and high winds have really effected the changing leaves this year making them not quite as spectacular as past years, however report are coming in that there are still nice patched of color along Kolob Reservoir Road/Right Hand Canyon (5 miles from Cedar City off Hwy U-14) and the Woods Ranch area. Reports are also saying that the leaves along Yankee Meadow Road are peaking, but may not last past the weekend.

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

Color Report: It seems that the weather changed faster then normal making the in the low elevations change sooner then they usually do. The leaves are just getting better in Kolob Canyons and the surrounding lower elevations around Cedar City. Glowing oranges, vibrant reds and stunning yellows can be found almost everywhere you look! These leaves are very close to peak making this a great time to come explore southern Utah.
