CHARLESTON, West Virginia (October 6, 2016) – Viewing opportunities for the 2016 Columbus Day weekend are limited. Overall, there is very little color change in West Virginia. Some color is reported at Bald Knob.

Throughout the coming week, leaves in the highest elevations should take on color, including those in the Davis-Thomas area of Tucker County. Foliage at Spruce Knob, the highest point in West Virginia, should be changing colors, as should the leaves at elevations above 3,000 feet in Greenbrier, Pocahontas, Randolph and Webster counties.

A few points of interest where color should be anticipated in the next week or so include the Sinks of Gandy and Dry Fork, Cheat Mountain, Shavers Mountain, the headwaters of Tygart Valley River, the headwaters of both Forks of the Greenbrier River, Kennison Mountain and Elk Mountain.
