Peak Color has Arrived in Otter Creek Valley

With daytime temperatures in the mid 70’s and with the low 50’s at night, Indian Summer has arrived with the peak of color around the house. The walk with Buddy and Hunter at sunrise was so beautiful, I didn’t want to come back home. This should last for a week, with more reds, and brighter yellows with the Hickories. The Maples are always the most vibrant, with vermilion being the best.

Dick's Mtn Color
The colors are always the brightest right at sunrise. Shadows are deeper, and the damp leaves seem to glisten in the first sunlight.
