Oct. 25, 2013. Reports of excellent colors are coming from Boone and Blowing Rock, near the peak in the 3,000 and 4,000-foot elevation range, said Joe Veler, founder of Virtual Blue Ridge.
On Grandfather Mountain, fall colors no longer linger on the mountaintop as peak colors hit a week to two weeks ago, Landis Taylor, director of communications for Grandfather Mountain said.
High winds were reported on Wednesday night, which knocked some of the leaves off the trees on the mountain, Taylor added.
However, even with peak color no longer on Grandfather, the mountain is still a great destination to look down on the fall colors developing at lower elevations in Hickory and Morganton.
