The leaves have been difficult to predict this year with weather conditions. We are seeing a lot of yellows, some oranges, and a touch of reds. This week and upcoming weekend will be prime viewing time for this year. We fear that much time after this weekend will cause the leaves to just fall off instead of change colors due to the dry conditions we had early on. Come visit Talimena this weekend and stop at our Fall Foliage Festival November 6th!
Changing temperatures and shorter daylight hours help promote the fall colors we all enjoy! Temperatures are just now starting to cool off and will help the leaves begin to change. Talimena Scenic Drive is showing some yellows and a few oranges but does not have the vibrant colors we normally love. We are estimating October 26th - November 6th for the best foliage colors. This year we have experienced less rainfall so conditions are dry and will also affect the foliage. Check out our Fall Foliage Festival on November 6th if you come that weekend for the Drive! Be sure
We are estimating peak foliage for this year to be between October 20th - November 6th. The Scenic Drive is still pretty green with yellows and some oranges on smaller trees. The leaves have not started to change to the gorgeous oranges or reds yet. Next week the evening temperatures are predicted to drop and should help the leaves begin to turn! Unfortunately the conditions are dry this year so the foliage may not last long. Check back for updates next week!
This week the leaves are just now turning yellow. We are not seeing any of the gorgeous oranges or reds yet. Though there is not a 100% accurate way to predict the best color time. It is estimated that the end of October into the first week of November will be the peak foliage time.
