Fall Colors Are Now Peaking In Utah Canyons

I had fun driving the Nebo Loop Scenic Byway on Saturday, enjoying the beautiful weather and the multi-colored leaves.

Fall colors are peaking right now in canyons in the Salt Lake/Ogden/Provo areas. Colors have already peaked on top of the mountains but there is still time to take in the colors at lower elevations in the canyons.

The St George/Zion Park area is a couple weeks behind northern Utah, Colors are coming on strong there and will peak during early November.

Utah is enjoying amazingly nice fall weather. Most days have been dry, sunny and warm.

For my trip, I drove up Santaquin Canyon to intersect the Nebo Loop Road just above the Payson Lakes. I’d never driven that canyon, and it was fun exploring new country. I then continued north, following the loop down to the town of Payson.

I got several nice photos. I’ve included two here.
