Looking for fall color? Check this site
Several mornings in rural Douglas County arrived with an ever so slight covering of frost reminding me fall is here despite the beautiful days. My flowering plants were nestled under a blanket while others, less important only because they've had their glory, were nipped.
I notice the prairie grass already has its beautiful fall bronze-copper look. The trees far off in the valley appear green, but they too will soon be adding their reds and yellows.
Today I came across this site from the USDA Forest Service. It has the latest updates on tree color divided by region across the United States.
I plan to study it closely as we usually try to spend a few days chasing color. But, in the end, many local areas such as the Wildlife and Parks above Clinton Lake are just as beautiful.
Any other rural areas around Lawrence to add to a leaf peeping road trip?
