Oct 14th week should be peak at 4000′ (reds are showing now at higher elevations) and each week there after the colors should be vivid 1000′ lower in elevation. Temperatures are in the 50’s at night and low 70’s during the day. This Saturday is the Apple Festival in Wilkesboro. Come camp and enjoy the weather.
