Droning on and on About Utah's Changing Fall Colors

Real Estate Agent with Utah Homes 9334967-SA00

As the remnants of summer turn to autumn, nature puts on that last colorful coat before winter.

Some of my best travel memories include the drive from Washington DC to Pennsylvania, a must-see trip through Sedona Arizona and my local favorite- traversing Utah's Alpine Loop with Sundance at its central stop.

I'm sure you have your favorites, but this one is moving high up the national list.

Justin McFarland is a Utah local who has presented some pretty breathtaking landscapes via camera and drone. Here's some of his latest work:

This footage has gone a bit viral, showing up on multiple websites around the world. If you hadn't seen it yet, I thought I'd share. He doesn't have that many subscribers to his youtube page but some of his individual videos have quite a few views. It's probably best to visit his playlist to see more footage from around the state.

Chuck- one of the things I miss in Florida would be the beautiful fall colors. Those colors are gorgeous.

Kathy Streib The only problem with this great burst of color occurs so suddenly and doesn't last as long as one might like. Still, I can't complain- especially since I too had spent a great deal of time in an evergreen location.

Wow, those are some amazing color changes!  We don't get anything close to that and the only place I see much of it is when I am out on a hike.

Brian England - I love this time of year. When we lived in Gilbert we would sometimes manage to get to Utah in time for the best color pop.

Chuck, a few years ago I let a young guy buy my Porsche 928 and make payments on it.  He stopped paying and complained the car had too many issues.

We flew to Denver, picked up the car, fixed it up a bit, and drove it back through the SE corner of Utah and visited some of the great national parks.  It is gorgeous country and would love to go north next time.  I designed a house in Alpine many years ago.

It is a beautiful part of the country and not many have discovered some of our more hidden gems. I'm glad you have been able to take it in.

Chuck Willman UtahHomes.me - Your beautiful Fall Colors makes me hungry for travel to areas where foilage is bursting with colors that looks like melted crayons! They make me so happy just to look at them! I can't imagine how gorgeous and wonderful it must be to experience it all first hand!

I live two miles away from the Uintah Natural Forest. There are waterfalls, a glacier, a cave, rivers, lakes and ski runs. This time of year the cars meander through these vistas- it's an experience that everyone would do well to try at least once.

Chuck, when they talk about colors of Fall, we usually think of the Northeast, but WOW, we should think about your area - stunning!

It's just gorgeous (as is the Northeast at this time of year).

Indeed lovely, and it is too bad that these lovely sights don't last long in your area, but I'm sure you enjoy it!

Fortunately we'll be graced by snow-capped mountains, some evergreens, and the soothing sound of runoff streams.
