Will drought conditions mute the color of the autumn woods.

Reports are indicating that the awe inspiring brightness with the turning of leaves may only be a mooted brown and gray, with leaves then just falling to the ground.

In West Virginia's highlands the leaf color is sorta dismal.

But maybe there will be a few surprises for us who have held close to the awesome color of fall.

During the past 25 years, here in Calhoun, the glorious colors have continued to become more muted.

But we can always throwback to some great fall photos published on the Herald a few years back.
