Spearfish Canyon colors begin decline

The fall colors in Spearfish Canyon are beginning their decline.
Spearfish Canyon color expert and author Jerry Boyer said the peak occurred last Wednesday. 
"I had hoped to fool Mother Nature by waiting until today to find peak after the forecasted light winds and moisture, but the rain never came, and the leaves could not hang-on and are beginning to fall," Boyer said.
According to Boyer, the canyon colors have left the bright limes and yellows and have entered the final and brief burst of rich golds, oranges, and rusts before their fall.
