Fall Color Report, October 16, 2020

As we enter into the last half of October, fall foliage changes are becoming evident.  The reds of sourwoods and dogwoods are on display.  The short-lived yellows of tulip poplar are mixed with leaves of green. Oaks, hickories, and maples have yet to join the ranks with any brilliance. The mountain slopes are still dominated by the taller green canopy but slight changes are obvious.  Lakeshores, roadsides, and forest edges reveal that the big show is on the way.  Another crisp cool down is on tap in a few days which should help foster further color arrival. If the peak is not here by the first of November, it should be close.
