Great October -- IF... PDF Print
Written by Steve Frank   
Thursday, 29 September 2011 05:51

For Chambers of Commerce, merchants, tourism destinations—anyone benefiting from mountain tourism, we could be on the verge of a great October—if the leaves will just cooperate.  First, October has five full weekends, with the bonus of Halloween on a Monday,

extending the festivities even a day longer.  Then there are the leaves…and it appears as the early blush comes across the High Country that the colors could be very good to excellent—if they just wait a bit.  At this point, colors are coming a bit early, but hopes are that the colors will do their bit to slowly evolve their shades from the highest elevations to the lower areas of the mountains.  If that happens, we could be in for a great tourism season.
