Anyone take the drive up to mountains yet? Any fall colors on the leaves?

My husband and I spent this past weekend up at Roan Mountain, TN, near Banner Elk; very few of the trees had turned. My husband thought that the little color we did see was due to the drought rather than to low temperatures.

Thanks everyone for your reply! I really want to take a drive up there but hate to spend the gas find out everything's still green (even though it's still pretty that way) but I really want to see all the majestic fall colors just like in the magazines!
Thanks again.

Still too early to tell if 2007 will be much of a show compared to other years. The Foliage Network web site I posted earlier will continue to issue status reports twice a week until around the middle of November.

It will be late this year because of the drought. Late Oct/early Nov. will be best around A-ville.
