Southern Utah Fall Color 9/15/18

Cedar City • Brian Head Tourism Bureau has a new fall color report for September 16 to 22nd

High Elevation – Alpine
Brian Head, Cedar Breaks and Panguitch Lake
Percent of Change: Moderate
Color Report:
The colors in the high elevation are changing but there is still lots of green that will change in the next couple of weeks. Expert leaf peeper Maria Twitchell reported that there are some really pretty pops of color here and there around Brian Head and some along Hwy 143. As the weather continues to cool the colors will only get better!

Mid Elevation – Sub-Alpine
Parowan Canyon and Cedar Canyon Area
Percent of Change: Low
Color Report:
The oaks in the Mid Elevation are starting to show their beautiful oranges and reds there are also a few golden yellow sprinkled throughout. As the weather continues to cool more colors will appear so keep checking in for updates. Some for the scrub oaks along Kolob Reservoir Rd / Right Hand Canyon are starting to show their beautiful red hues and will only become more spectacular in the coming weeks.

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

Color Report:The colors in the Low Elevation usually don’t start until late September. However, I have seen a few yellowing trees in the cooler areas along the river and this is right on schedule. Please continue to check in because the report is updated regularly so as soon as there is any sign of color I will be sure to let you know.
