The vibrant colors of fall foliage is caused by the presence of pigments that are revealed as the trees slow down photosynthesis in preparation for the winter season. This reduces the amount of chlorophyll pigments that give leaves their green color and lets other hidden colors shine through. The Northern Area Dam & Reservoir Projects offer numerous scenic views during the “leaf peeping season”.
