FALL HIKING SEASON!
FALL HIKING SEASON! Ahh, September. There’s already a nip in the air in Arizona’s high country and that means fall color is just a few weeks away. Because of our state’s multifarious landscape, “autumn” conditions begin in the high elevations in late September and trickle down into the deserts through December. So whether you’re in the mood for aspens, oaks or sycamores, we have a wide window of opportunity for viewing fall foliage. FIND YOUR HIKE: Click on the "fall color" link in this blog's Trail Index bar. This will bring up 80+ trails with lots of colorful foliage. EVEN MORE FALL HIKES: pick up a copy of the October 2010 issue of PHOENIX magazine for 4 more great fall hikes---not found on this blog!! On newsstands September 23. INFORMATION: For weekly reports, call the Forest Service Fall Color Hotline, 1-800-354-4595 or visit: http://www.fs.fed.us/r3/recreation/fall-colors/fall.shtml
