The leaves are starting to change. BUT, it is only on the canopy. Under the tree canopy, the leaves are still green.

The leaves continue to change. But, many of them have changed to brown instead of the vibrant colors of yellow, orange, and red that we all love. The best times to view the leaves will be from the 9-17th. We do expect a lot of people on the 9/10/11th due to Columbus day being the 11th. We are also expecting sunny skies on Saturday and Sunday with highs in the 60's. On Monday we will have partly sunny skies with temperature highs reaching 70. Enjoy!

This year the leaves have been a mixed bag. We have many trees with brown leaves instead of vibrant orange, yellow, and orange leaves. Some trees lost their leaves early, where others are still green.

We are going to get a big storm Oct 15/16th. It will produce 2-4 inches of rain and produce high winds (20-30 mph). This will take down many of the leaves. Not sure how far past peak we will be this weekend. But, it should be a nice weekend with good temperatures and sunny weather.

This is probably the last weekend of good leaf peaking.
