Weekly Update: September 10th, 2021

Warm temperatures are making for a beautiful start to the fall color season! We have those "early turners" popping up here and there along our fall color routes, but most of our color is still showing that bright and rich green you expect to see before the colors start to turn. To stay up to date on the latest fall color throughout the region, subscribe to our weekly fall color updates where we will give you the latest information and user photos from across the area. We can't wait to see you in the area this fall!
