Fall Color Watch: The Leaves Are Changing Quickly in the Vail & Beaver Creek area
The leaves are changing very quickly in the high country this year. Every day, there's a new explosion of color and it's turning out to be an absolutely spectacular fall. This photo was taken today (9/10/12) from the parking lot of the Safeway in West Vail, alongside I-70. The colors are very visible right down into town, and the higher you climb, the more color there is.
The upcoming week and week-end will be perfect! We're enjoying sunny skies, a slight breeze, blue skies with a few scattered showers, and brilliant fall colors. Read Vail.net's custom weather forecast for Vail & Beaver Creek.
