But the colors of fall in the valley are still coming in. Here’s a sampling of the colorful foliage at Ridgeside:
We have many green trees that I expect will still turn and have some beautiful colors, including a red maple, ginko, and sweet gum tree. For more photos and updates, take a look at our Fall album on Facebook.
