(Eden, UT, 2009) The Ogden Valley Business Association has developed a fall color website and color journal that includes lodging and dining specials; color alerts; calendar of events; and an interactive leaf peeper blog-www.utahfallcolors.com.
According to board chairperson Carolyn Daniels, “If you are searching for spectacular fall scenery, you need up-to-date information. Because northern Utah’s elevations range from 4,200 feet at Ogden Bay Bird Refuge to almost 9,800 feet at Willard Peak there isn’t just one week when the trees are reaching their peak color. If you know where to go, you can find great fall color for over a month. Our color journal “leaf peepers” divulge their secrets regularly from September 1 through October 31 about the best trails, overlooks, wildlife viewing and might even suggest local cuisine you must try.”
The Ogden Valley, located 10 minutes east of Ogden City, includes the mountain hamlets of Eden, Huntsville and Liberty. The centerpiece of the Valley, Pineview Lake, is surrounded by peaks towering more than 9,000 feet housing three thriving ski resorts – Powder Mountain, Snowbasin, and Wolf Creek Utah. The Valley is a hub for natural adventure with roads leading to destinations like scenic Monte Cristo pass and Bear Lake; Avon Divide and the Cache Valley; North Ogden Divide to Willard Bay Bear River Bird Refuge and Brigham City.
Mountainsides begin their annual color change in early September with the peak occurring toward late September into early October. The website and color journal will keep everyone updated so they can better judge when the best time will be to make travel plans.
