This could be the best weekend for fall color of the year. There will be very good light and color is at its peak now. In the Buffalo River region fall color can vary a lot depending on location. There are still some areas where the peak is still a few days off because of slightly different local climate. Hollers are different than mountain tops, even the east-west vs. north-south orientation of hollers seems to impact color dates. The bottom line is that we will have good color for at least a week in many different locations.
There will be one more tour of the Old Grist Mill in Boxley Valley this weekend. This has drawn large crowds this year and it is definitely worth seeing. Hours are from 10 AM to 1 PM Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
