When are fall colors at their peak in the CLT area?

According to the dates on my fall photos it's beginning to mid-November. I would think from the last week of October to mid-November would cover it.

Honestly I always find November 3rd to be one of the peak days of fall color in Charlotte (it's an old friend's birthday and I always note the day)

I'd say the second week of November is the peak. We usually get our first, good hard frost shortly before Thanksgiving. The remaining leaves turn brown and fall quickly from the windy, dry, and cold Canadian air that's moving in.

Sometimes when the frost is late, the last leaves will retain their color and linger on the trees into the first week of December.

(For what it's worth, I just finished a six day drive in New England. It's peaking in New Hampshire right now.)

Yeah, I definitely would say early November is the peak time here...probably more like Mid October in the mountains around Asheville...
