With plenty of warm weather and sunshine, Vermont’s peaks and valleys are still showing an abundance of green foliage. Hints of fall color are topping the mountains, especially in the Northeast Kingdom, northern Green Mountains, and the highest elevations of Southern Vermont, according to Vermont Forests, Parks and Recreation Commissioner Michael Snyder.
In southern areas, state foresters are reporting hints of early color development. Although the mountains are still lush and green, there are hints of yellow and red that will become brighter every day through Vermont’s foliage season.
The hillsides are not yet in full swing, but the cooler nights that are predicted will begin to spur color change in the coming week.
