SALT LAKE CITY — A new video of Ogden Valley has gained national attention for its beautiful colors.
The video, which ABC News shared on Facebook, shows “dazzling fall colors on display in northern Utah.”
Drone footage from Justin McFarland of Storyful first created the video.
See the fall colors below:
So why do the colors look like this? According to The Washington Post, "High-altitude locations in the Mountain West are exhibiting peak to near-peak color, but, as you head east, the progression of color is somewhat delayed this year."1 comment on this story
McFarland told Fox 13 in Tampa Bay that recent rainstorms in Utah might have destroyed some of the leaves and left the trees bare.
“We just had some big rainstorms up here that might have knocked some of the leaves off, but there are a few colors still up there,” he told FOX 13 in Tampa Bay.
Several other areas of the country are experiencing a wave of fall colors, according to The Washington Post. For example, parts of northern Maine are showing foliage in shades of green because of dried-up leaves.
