Fall foliage is bursting with color across the region and many are taking advantage of the weather to see what they can. Officials with Grandfather Mountain State Park say this weekend should be one of the season's best for color, especially with colors still peaking up in some areas of the high country.

"...even if higher elevation sites are past peak, lower elevation sites will be coming into their best color over the next two weeks," Dr. Howie Neufeld, professor of biology at Appalachian State University and the WNC High Country’s official Fall Color Guy said in a press release from Grandfather Mountain.
