Leaf-peeping is part of being a Coloradan, but like much of 2020, it may be cancelled this year too!
Aspen leaves are likely to turn brown instead of yellow and orange, thanks to the unusually early freeze we just received in Colorado.
“It’s definitely going to affect the amount of fall foliage that we see this season,” Dan West, the state forest entomologist for the Colorado State Forest Service, said. “We’re likely to see quite a bit of loss of color. Instead of seeing the yellows and the oranges, we’re instead going to see more of a brown effect.”
