With healthy rains in through spring and early summer the trees are all healthy and color is looking strong. We are already seeing good changes at the higher elevations above 3500 feet.
The expectations as of now is that peak will hit at the highest elevations in the first week of October with those at 2500-3500 feet hitting the second and third weeks. We fully expect it to be a bit early this year based on what we are seeing right now.
Good luck this year finding that magic color and stay tuned for more updates.
