When we think of autumn colors, reds, oranges, and yellows are usually the first to come to mind. And they are brilliant! There are, however, so many other colors to enjoy during the season if you look closely. Asters, in their shades of blue and purple, bloom into October. Dogwood is a deep purple-maroon. Even the seed pods from summer blooms are interesting to observe in their shape and dark colors. Fall migration may be at the tail-end, but some species are still moving through, like late fall warblers and kinglets. Other species like Dark-eyed Juncos and American Tree Sparrows are arriving for their stay during winter. With the brisk air and vibrant autumn colors to see, now is a great time to take an autumn hike. Join us for a guided hike every weekend at 11:00am and 2:00pm. See you on the trails!
