Peak Color on the OMP Will be This Week & Weekend


Despite the high winds we’ve been experiencing on the Old Mission Peninsula during the past week, there’s still a lot of leaves on the trees. I’m going out on a limb to declare that we haven’t yet reached peak color.

I would say this week and heading into the weekend will be a great time for an OMP color tour. So basically through Sunday, Oct. 27, 2019. I might regret saying that because we’re supposed to have winds tomorrow, too. But for now, I’m going with it.

Today’s Photo of the Day was taken at “The Hogsback” on Center Road, looking west. If you’re heading north on Center Road, The Hogsback is just past the intersection of Smokey Hollow Road. Both sides of the road are sloped down from the road, creating a “hog’s back.”

For more info on the origins of The Hogsback, check out this little history I wrote back in 2016.
