This season is starting off slowly this year compared to last year. But this does not mean that the colors won’t be ramping up very shortly.
I’ll be keeping an eye out for the wonderful Jeff Foliage to start reporting the color change in New England.
Thanks to the fantastic state departments of natural resources in Minnesota and Wisconsin, I am able to report extremely accurately the current color change in this region. Traditionally, these two states start the fall color change first.
Tim and Jill Taylor from the Detroit, Michigan area will again be reporting color change in “Pure Michigan.”
There is no color change to report at this time. Traditionally, the highest peaks of West Virginia will start to show colors very soon.
There is no color change to report at this time. Traditionally, the mountainous regions of North Carolina and Tennesee start to show colors first.
The wonderful, Dr. Howard Neufeld from Appalachian State University will be providing great updates throughout the season.
There is no color change to report at this time. Traditionally, the aspens in northern New Mexico will start to turn color very soon.
Cooper P. who was all around Alaska this weekend reports that there is some majestic autumnal change going on. He has the best photo submission so far this year.
The fall foliage season always starts in Alaska and I can report peak conditions in a large area with color showing throughout the entire state.
In Idaho, Montana, Utah, and Colorado the colors are starting to show in large higher elevation areas.
