During my time off late last week, the Beamish family made the annual pilgrimage to Mount Lemmon in search of Fall colors. We were not disappointed! Best colors I found were in the Bear Wallow area & Mount Lemmon trailhead by UA SkyCenter (past Ski Valley).
Safe to say we’re near peak atop Mount Lemmon & likely reaching max colors as early as this weekend. Patchy colors are trickling into the foliage on the Santa Ritas, Huachucas and Chiricahuas. After this weekend, the White Mountains probably start to head into past peak territory.
