‘Color-ometer’ about to pop: Your guide to best places to view foliage in Oak Creek Canyon

That means if you want to see the glorious cottonwoods, willows, oaks, poplars and even maples turn color in Oak Creek Canyon, it’s time to make plans. The next few weeks will be amazing. The colors are still a pale lime-green, but Mother Nature is ready to explode.
