Dr. Howard Neufeld is a biology professor at Appalachian State University. He and Jonathan talked about the peak fall foliage times in North Carolina, what determines the colors we will see, and his favorite spot to check out. Jonathan then gave a few tips for when you go to the mountains.
Know Before You Go:
- Book reservations early: Hotels, Motels, and Bed & Breakfasts will be filling up fast.
- Be prepared for weather changes: Weather in the Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountains changes quickly, so don’t be upset if you can’t get any photos due to the fog or rain. Just hang out for a bit and be patient. Chances are it will blow-by and the sun may even come out.
- Wear layers of clothing or bring a few extra jackets or sweaters. Temperatures here in the Blue Ridge can vary greatly based on weather conditions and altitude.
