FALL FOLIAGE WILL BE COLORFUL THIS YEAR
Dan West, the state forest entomologist for the Colorado State Forest Service, has been flying over the forests across the state for the past two months. West believes some of the forests are showing signs of recovery from the stress caused by years of drought. His conclusion is that this fall there will be "good-to-great” color, with the peak expected in mid-September. West also sees the weather cooperating, with what he says are "almost ideal conditions," with cool, not cold, nights and sunny, warm days.
