About what month do the leaves start to change in Oregon? I will be there September 13th-21st. Is that too early?

For most of Oregon, I'd say that's a bit early. Here on the coast September is sometimes the most pleasant month though.

September is too early for almost all of the state. You'll start seeing some early color in the highest locations by late in the month, but October is generally the time for the best color.

This photo was taken last year, October 22, and you can see the alders are just beginning to get some color. Elevation was around 1,300 feet MSL.
