You'll Be Happy To Hear That Montana's Fall Foliage Is Expected To Be Bright And Bold This Year
We’re wrapping up another beautiful summer in Montana, and whether you dread it or embrace it, autumn is fast approaching. Bidding adieu to long, warm, sunny days is never easy, but it may help to know that Montana’s fall foliage will be especially vibrant this year.
Montana may not be as famous for fall foliage as New England, but our autumns are still spectacular.
Late September and early October are especially gorgeous.
There are a variety of factors that determine how colorful a fall will be.
Basically, it all comes down to the weather. A cooler than normal spring can the leaves dormant longer than usual, but that means brighter leaves when they do start to turn.
If you live in Western Montana, you can expect to see the most vibrant leaves between October 5 and October 21 this year, according to the Farmers' Almanac.
For Central Montanans, it starts a little earlier.
September 28 - October 9 are peak fall foliage dates there.
Life in Montana is always great, but early autumn here is especially amazing.
Of course, we never know when to expect snow, but we've usually got some time to enjoy the beauty.
If time allows, make a trip to Glacier National Park as soon as possible.
Their late September and early fall foliage will be especially gorgeous this year.
