A few photos from 10/24/2014. The first bluff lines are commonly 1,000 feet above the valleys below and it is a bit cooler up there, this is where the maples of Arkansas are common and are now beginning their autumn color change; a few of the photos below are sweet gums along the Little Buffalo River. Peak should be next week.

Much warmer this morning. I went out early this morning and found patchy light fog and it had lifted by 7:45 AM except over the Buffalo River below Pruitt. The interaction with the sunlight was pretty, however. In 2 days the tree color change has advanced a bit, with more oranges, and yellows showing of the hillsides. Saw a White-Throated Sparrow in a changing dogwood on the way back:

There is still lots of green left so I am guessing still 1 1/2 – 2  weeks until peek colors. It was a cool breezy day (42F this morning) with only very early fog:
