October 21st - Fall Leaf Report

Fall color continues to be the number one question we receive in the visitor center. This year, Mother Nature is keeping everyone on their toes.  It's a wait and see sort of season. 

Today, our Blue Ridge Parkway communities have added pops of Sycamore and Maple reds, however, green is the dominant color.  The image here was taken in downtown Marion, this is Mt. Ida. She is the inspiration for their slogan, where main street meets the mountains.  Ida is beginning to pop her golds and yellows!

Today, another cold front is moving through the mountains and rain is predicted for tonight.  The remainder of the week is sunny with daytime temperatures predicted to be in the 60s.  Perfect conditions to coax more color from the leaves.  Come on over!
