Virginia Fall 2009 Foliage Reports

It’s fall and the colors are changing in the Virginia Mountains. This list will stay at the top of this site until all of the color is out of the mountains (or Thanksgiving, whichever comes first).

Virginia Fall 2009: Shenandoah National Park Fall Foliage Report.

Fall has arrived in Shenandoah bringing shorter days and cooler temperatures to the mountains of Virginia. The colors and textures of autumn change daily. The most visible changes this week are in the higher elevations of the park and especially in the Skyland, Hawksbill, and Big Meadows areas. But no matter where you look right now, you are sure to see the colorful signs of fall.

Fall wildflowers are displaying their seasonal hues along the Skyline Drive and many park trails. Aptly named Goldenrods and huge patches of showy Purple Asters are blooming vibrantly. Deep cinnamon colored ferns and a variety of yellowing plants are very visible on the forest floor this week.
