October is here!! The colors are soon to follow…

There is a chill in the air today….a nice reprieve from the sizzling summer temps we experienced this year.  However, we may be nicely rewarded by surviving the heat this year.  According to Kathy Gould Mathews, an associate professor at the University of Western Carolina specializing in plant systematics, the weather pattern we had this year could mean vibrant and beautiful color in the fall foliage.  For more detailed information, you can read the full article here.

The Southern Appalachian mountains are home to more than 100 species of trees.  Most of these are deciduous, meaning they change color.  After traveling to various parts of the country during the fall season, I can honestly say that there is nowhere more beautiful than the Great Smoky Mountains in the fall.

Typically, the last two weeks of October and the first week of November are the peak of color change in the Smokies.  Why not make your home base at Tremont Outdoor Resort and take in the glory of the Creator’s handiwork this Fall as you enjoy the wonders of the most visited National Park in the country?

Stay tuned to our blog for a continuous update on the changing of the leaves!
