I had a meeting yesterday at Snowbird and it didn't disappoint with lovely fall colors in Little Cottonwood Canyon.
The concept of "peak color" in Utah has always been an odd one for me. Unlike the northeast US where the elevation contrasts are smaller and the trees and shrubs seem to have a more consistent timing for the fall transition, there are fairly large variations with elevation and species here. That said, I thought it was quite pretty throughout the canyon and especially enjoyed what I think were gamble oak that were on fire in places in the lower to mid canyon.
The forecast for this weekend is also very fall like. A deep upper-level trough is digging and amplifying just to our west today and tomorrow. Saturday we will be ahead of the system in the warm southerly flow with temps near 80°F in the valley. Expect some breezy conditions in the valley and in the mountains and high clouds at times.
