Fall Color Maps!

My God, I love fall.

When Sam and I lived in Colorado, I took thousands of pictures like this one. I’ve put a few up on Flikr for fun. Mineola, Texas is no slouch either, when it comes to leaves, so when it happens I’ll post a few.

If you’re headed out to see the leaves change, here’s a cool resource from the US Forest Service. It’s a fall color map that allows you to enter your forest of choice in any US state and get an idea what stage the leaves are in.

For instance, here’s what’s happening in the San Juan National Forest which is pictured on the left. People who lived in Albuquerque and Dallas used to call us during leaf season and plan their trips according to what we saw out the window. Thanks to the US Government, you can now do it online!
