On the mountaintop valley, the leaves are slightly past peak with 50% have already fallen. This weekend IS the peak weekend.
1,000'+ elevation - 90% changed - 50% Fallen
2,400'+ elevation - 100% changed - 75% Fallen
3,500'+ elevation - 100% changed - 100% Fallen
Browning: moderate amount at lower elevations
With the large noreaster storm on Oct 17th, we received heavy rain and winds. This caused many of the leaves to fall. This weekend may have foliage left. Lower elevations, below 1500', will still have good foliage.

The leave have really started to change in the last week. This year the foliage is a little early. We still believe that peak date will be around October 10th.

2,400'+ elevation - 75% changed - 15% Fallen
3,500'+ elevation - 100% changed - 25% Fallen

We are just starting the Fall foliage season. This year it has started with significant number leaves changing on the tops of the trees, but only a few changing below the canopy. Some areas have no trees changing, and others have significant changes. We still believe that peak date will be around October 10th.
1,000'+ elevation - 5% changed - 1% Fallen
2,400'+ elevation - 10% changed - 2% Fallen
3,500'+ elevation - 15% changed - 5% Fallen
Browning: will most likely be a problem
