Table Rock NC Morganton NC Fall Leaf Change in the mountains of North Carolina

Leaf Viewing in the mountains of North Carolina came slightly later this year and because of so much rain, the colors tended to be more brown and dark yellow. Still beautiful in some areas with varied colors. This weekend November 7 thru November 8 will probably be the last weekend to enjoy leaf change in the higher elevations - yet the foothills will enjoy another week of color through November the 15th.

Still haven't seen the color range and bright colors like we witnessed 7 years ago - mainly because of too much rain or too little rain - also strong winds after some rains tended to make the leaves fall sooner. Hopefully everyone can make it to the North Carolina mountains this year.
