Photos from the Harrison Hills Park Overlook capture the changing colors of fall
Sept. 26, 2013
Every day for the past six weeks, Valley News Dispatch staff photographers Jason Bridge, Erica Dietz and Eric Felack, in addition to freelance photographer Bill Shirley, stopped at the scenic Overlook in Harrison Hills Park in Harrison around 3 p.m., and took a photo of the leaves changing color over the Allegheny River.
In varying weather conditions, from sunny to cloudy, raining and overcast, and even braving an infestation of stink bugs crawling on their clothes in mid-October, they recorded the same scene to show the leaves changing color.
The area across the Allegheny River shows the River Forest Country Club and surrounding homes in Allegheny Township.
As weather forecasters accurately predicted, this was not a good season for vivid fall colors because of the warmer temperatures and abundant rainfall in the Alle-Kiski Valley, both of which inhibit color change in leaves.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING.
