Fall colors are now peaking in of our low-elevation national parks. In Arches, Canyonlands and Capitol Reef, colors are impressive right now. In Zion Canyon, the peak will occur within a couple weeks. (Bryce Canyon is located at a high elevation and colors have already peaked.)
Zion National Park has launched this Facebook page showing photos of fall in the park. The images are spectacular. We are showing one here, but it is well worth clicking to the page to see them all. The accompanying comments are also worth reading. Below we give the page introduction and two comments.
It's the most colorful time of the year! Temperatures are pleasant and the canyons and plateaus burst with color. Leaves typically peak in Zion Canyon in early to mid-November.
- Awesome! 11 More days until my first trip to Zion!
- Fell seriously in love with Zion couple of weeks ago, please beam me up...
