Isn't it neat when you can see the difference with the patches of conifers so clearly?
We aren't quite there yet at 53N in the Rockies. The greater rainfall holds the green leaves for a few weeks longer. Mid October ought to be very different. Here and there, individual aspens with be rose/peach pink, not yellow like the ones standing right beside them. The Douglas Maples put on the annual blast of fall color.

Same here at 44.23N. Even the sugar maples are holding back. The hickory nuts are falling but leaves are taking their time.

The altitude is over 10,000 ft above sea level, thus the color change. In the valley below, the trees are just now turning (mostly cottonwood). Since this is the high desert with an average humidity in the teens, we have very few deciduous trees.
