When is Peak Color?

The phones have been ringing off the hook with curious leaf peepers wanting the inside word on when peak color will arrive.

The answer is: It's pretty colorful up here, but it depends on your definition of peak.

There seem to be at least two schools of thought on what "peak" means. Some people think peak is when all the leaves have changed, but that means that some of the leaves have already fallen down. So, some people think that peak is earlier, when a good amount of leaves have changed but not too many have fallen down. It really depends on what you prefer, but either way, watching the Blue Ridge turn to gold is stunningly beautiful. Below you'll find some pictures taken yesterday, so judge for yourself -- is this peak?

This weekend is Harvest Fest and the last weekend of October is shaping up to be a big one, from our own Wintergreen Events to lots of great events in Nelson County. Here are our picks for October 28-30:

Make plans to visit in the next several weeks and see this breathtaking display. This year looks to be an especially beautiful change, with beautiful weather to match.
