When does the fall color begin and where can you see good fall color?

Fall colors begin at the highest elevations first. Normally, this occurs in September when the days get shorter and the nights become colder. Fall color displays from the vine maple and huckleberries are dramatic until the snow begins to cover them. On the White Pass Scenic Byway, US Hwy 12, dramatic golden yellow colors are visible later in the season. The Tamarack (or also known as larch) are vivid on the eastern slopes of the White Pass summit in November.
