Bath County leaf report as of October 17, 2015

58By Lynn R. Mitchell

I had an email this morning from friend Barb who said she was sending a leaf report for areas west of Staunton in Bath County, Virginia:

We spent the last 5 days camping at  Douthat, great weather, good for campfires.  It has not reached peak in that area. Falling Spring was still green as was other areas but yellow hickories and dogwoods were pretty.  Warm Springs Mountain was colorful, almost peak.  All should be good next week, just giving you a report in case you want to roam over there.  I hope to get up on Skyline for a short run.

There you have it … an up-to-the-minute leaf report from Bath County. The next week will see many changes especially since frost has hit the Shenandoah Valley for the first time this season. We’ll be watching.
