Compared to yesterday’s view, this one has quite a bit more color, proving that different slopes and locations can present varying degrees of color change even at similar elevations. This morning was overcast and blustery, and the winds undoubtedly pulled leaves from their perches. But as we are posting this afternoon, the breezes have calmed down and the impact on the foliage displays nearby was minimal. This afternoon’s blue skies are promising a gorgeous week ahead!
