Have you ever felt sometimes that time has stood still? That’s what seems to have happened this past week with respect to fall color change in the mountains. Your fall color prognosticators are all in agreement that leaf color is in about the same stage this week as last week. This is probably attributable to that warm period we had (which tends to delay color development) and to the rains. Remember, the best color development occurs when we have sunny days and cool nights and the upcoming forecast seems favorable for good fall leaf color: most of the rest of the week is supposed to be cool and sunny.
