Spearfish Canyon color change update

The interview posted above is from SDPB's daily public affairs show, In the Moment with Lori Walsh.

Spearfish Canyon in western South Dakota is on its way to fall splendor. As the canyon prepares for the season change with its annual color transformation the spectrum is changing each day.  Kimberly Talcott lives in Spearfish and is the canyon’s leaf reporter. She says the color change is near forty percent.

“We are getting out of that lime green phase into the yellow phase. We’re still low to moderate but definitely starting to see the changes.”

Spearfish Canyon is getting cooler which helps the leaves stop making chlorophyll and reveal their beautiful colors.
