Columbus Day Weekend – Oh, the Color

For those who weren’t here, I will post some pictures of the color this weekend. It is probably about peak color and the blue sky weather made things wonderful. Leading up to the weekend, there had been lots of warm weather in September and never near a frost so the trees really didn’t start to turn until last week. The cool days last week did the trick. Luckily, the rain came on Friday (which was quite miserable) but Saturday had blue skies although quite a bit of wind. Sunday had less wind and Monday is perfect!
