Color spotter Katie Shaw reports from the Shasta Cascade:
0-15%- Butte County- Colors in Butte County are not expected to change much until the end of the month, due to our unseasonably warm weather this fall.
0-15% – Whiskeytown National Recreation Area- The Park is just now starting to experience fall color changes throughout the park, but Park officials say the colors should be more prominent towards the end of the month.
0-15%- Burney Falls State Park- No noticeable fall color changes in the Park until mid October.
0-15%- Lassen Volcanic National Park- The Park is not experiencing any distinct color changes yet, but towards the end of the month the aspens should start showing off their yellowish/golden tones.
0-15%- Bizz Johnson Trail- Colors along The Bizz Johnson Trail are not expected to change until the middle of October.
0-15%- Lassen National Forest- Lassen National Forest will most likely not experience noticeable fall color changes until the first of October, but there are a few aspens that are showing color.
0-15%- Modoc National Forest- No color changes yet but the nights are starting to turn pretty cold, so the beginning of color changes is expected in the next couple weeks or so.
0-15%- Mt. Shasta- The Mt Shasta area is not experiencing any fall color changes yet, due to the warm weather.
0-15%- Weaverville- It’s still a little too early to look for fall color changes in Trinity County. Toward the middle of October the area really starts to swirl with color.
0-15%- Plumas County- Plumas County remains to be one of the most spectacular places to witness the signs of the changing seasons! Leaf peepers have already started recording their sightings, which can be viewed on the Plumas County Visitors Bureau’s webpage.
Katie suggests stopping by the Chester/Lake Almanor Chamber of Commerce to pick up a new brochure with details of great scenic drives.
