After a fantastic peak season in the Northeast Kingdom, sadly parts of Vermont and New Hampshire are now in past peak conditions.
As you can see there is a lot of high and peak color in this region. Little to no color is still in most of Rhode Island and parts of Massachusetts. Look for this to change in the near future.
The Upper midwest is quickly moving into past peak territory. For the best colors, you’ll want to head into central Wisconsin.
In the plains, there can be wonderful colors found in west-central, South Dakota.
Low color continues to stay around in the Washington D.C. beltway but for the best color, you’ll want to head to West Virginia higher elevations.
The Shenandoah highest peaks are now in high color and in southwest Virginia, the colors are either moderate or high.
Colors are finally starting to continue to pop up in this region. The best colors can be found in North Carolina up on Beech Mountain. Banner Elk is starting to show some great color as well. Changes continue to move slower compared to previous years.
In Arkansas low color continues to grow around the state.
High colors can now be found in Flagstaff, Arizona. I was speaking with native Arizonan, Casey Ratlief, about how Flagstaff is an extremely underrated fall foliage location.
Peak colors are now in a large portion of New Mexico. In Texas, the panhandle is starting to show some color that moves into Oklahoma.
Alaska is always the first to show fall colors in the United States and always the first state to be completely past peak.
For the best color, you’ll want to head to Provo, Utah, or Mono County, California which had some “Fall Snowliage” this past weekend.
