Autumn is right around the corner, and you know what that means. It's almost time to go out and explore the vibrant yellow and orange colored trees that will cover mountains and fill canyons.

ABC 4 compiled a list of times that the state will likely see peak vibrant colors.

Unfortunately, this year's colors may not be as vibrant as before due to the extremely dry conditions that the state has experienced over the last several months. The lack of water can cause the trees to produce much duller colors in the fall months. In addition, the leaves may start turning brown and die a lot earlier than usual.

According to ABC 4, here are peak times for autumn colors all across Utah:

  • Sep. 20-27
    • Steinaker State Park, Vernal
    • Jones Hole National Fish Hatchery, Vernal
    • Ouray National Wildlife Refuge, Randlett
  • Sep. 27-Oct. 4
    • Price Canyon
    • Manti-La Salt National Forest
    • Wasatch, Rich, and Summit counties
    • Eastern portion of Utah County
    • Alpine Loop
  • Oct. 4-11
    • Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons
    • Salt Lake City
    • All other Utah counties
