Fall color is in full swing at 8500 feet elevation on up. A front moved through on Sept 28 (yesterday), bringing with it moderate winds (today also) which is already tearing off the 'gold' in some places. Peak color is already in full force at these higher elevations, with color at lower elevations showing the onset of yellow. With the weather cooling over the next week, peak color in places like lower Lundy Canyon should be the first week of October, probably around Oct 4 to Oct 10. But weather and wind can also tear down the show unexpectedly.
