The road was almost white, at least the rocks and ballast around. The paved part of teh road had been tracked up by the dirt from the rocky part which was also white. When I look at the photo, I see nearly what I saw when I was standing there.

The trees throughout the area looked off. We had thought all of the rain was going to make the fall foliage really stand out and that may still happen. But I was reading on the City Data forums that people are actually saying that leaves are dropping off the trees now and turning brown. We already saw a bit of funky colors going on in the area.

I saw a surprising amount of leaf drop when I was in the area as well. There was a solid week or so of temps in the low 50's at night, maybe lower at some elevations, and that's pretty cool for mid-late August. There seem to be competing thoughts that it will either be a really good foliage year due to the rain, or an early unimpressive drop due to the early cooldown followed by a huge storm that came through on Saturday. I saw some trees turning which shocked me.

I am sure people like Loyd and Ron and others who live in the area can keep up in the loop.

If anyone is interested, I would be more than happy to report the conditions in my area.
