Peak Fall Color: Spectacular

Due to a drier than usual spring and summer, expect lots of spectacular color this fall in the northern mountains. *Fall color peak should arrive during the first and second week of October in the highest elevations, above 4,000 feet, and during the third week of October in the mid-elevations, 2,500 to 3,500 feet…  http://goo.gl/MpW2TJ

The scientific reason for the turning of the leaves?   Sugar concentrations in the leaves increase during dry weather because the trees are not taking up as much water through their roots. The abundance of sugars leads to the production of more an-tho-cyan-ins, the red pigments that appear when green chlorophyll begins receding.
