FALL COLOR 2011

Saturday, December 17th, 2011

p1010021a.jpgIn spite of searing summer heat and drought in the lake area, nature has come through with a nice fall foliage color display. Once again, some of the best viewing is on Hwy 190 between Livingston and FM 980 and on FM 980 North from Hwy 190 to Riverside.  Foliage color should last through Christmas.
