Blue Skies, Cooler Weather and Fall Fun

Does anyone else find it hard to believe that November is already here? It's beginning to feel a bit more like fall with cooler temperatures forecast for the Chattanooga area by the upcoming weekend.


Fall color is at peak right now, but naturalist John Dever estimates foliage and wildlife viewing should continue to be strong for another couple of weeks. Here's his fall color update from aboard the Tennessee Aquarium River Gorge Explorer.


"There is still a whole lot of green out there, leaves are still turning and probably still over 50% attached. In the sky we are seeing plenty of hawks, vultures and increased presence of our local Bald Eagles at Brown's Ferry. Overall it was a great week with sunny and clear skies, moderate winds and temperature and great daytime looks at the moon."



If you haven't been out this year, make plans today to enjoy nature from aboard the Explorer.
