Awesome Map Predicting Peak Foliage

I bet you can’t say “predicting peak foliage” 5 times really fast!

Everyone loves fall.  Even the people that don’t love fall like it because it would be wrong to do otherwise.  The slight chill in the air, Thanksgiving, Halloween, seeing women go nuts for pumpkin spiced everything.  But we can’t forget the single most defining feature of autumn: absolutely gorgeous trees!

I’m blessed to live in an area with a lot of trees.  We’re just minutes from the Natchez Trace Parkway, home to some of the most beautiful fall foliage you will ever see.  When the trees hit their peak in October, it is a challenge to keep your eyes on the road.  I’m certain that the stunning fall scenery has been at least a partial reason for some unfortunate auto accidents.

Check out the fall foliage prediction map to see when the beautiful colors of fall will grace your neck of the woods.  The trees are just starting to turn in the northeastern United States and Rocky Mountain areas, and in the next few weeks the sea of brilliant hues of yellow, orange, and red will gradually work their way down the map.
