Feast Your Eyes On This Amazing Sight!

The view from the canopy tour. Oct. 13, 2011.
  This weekend is going to start our peak week for fall colors in the Harpers Ferry area. As leaves begin to loose green chlorophyll, the bright green signs of summer begins to fade into vibrant yellow and orange colors. 

  As more time passes, you'll begin to see bright reds and purples in trees such as maples. Sunlight combined with cooler autumn nights cause the leaves to change the glucose inside of them into a red color. You'll notice more of a brown color in oaks is due to waste that is left in the leaves.

 The best view by far of the foliage in Harpers Ferry is from the Harpers Ferry Canopy Tour itself! Our zip line offers a gorgeous panorama above the trees. The view stretches all the way to the historic Hill Top House in downtown Harpers Ferry. 
As we get closer to the peak off Fall,
the colors become more vibrant.
