Amanda LasleyOct. 11 Report - South Mountains State Park

Oct. 9, 2013, looking west along South Mountain Park Ave.

Green and yellow are the predominant colors in the South Mountains this week. Enjoy a colorful drive into the park. Wildflowers abound, and even the evergreens are shedding a few yellow leaves this week. Hiking along a trail will allow you to enjoy the little bits of red and orange that are hiding amidst the mountains of yellow poplars, maples and sweetgums.
