Sunday, September 23, marked the first day of autumn in Indiana, so soon the beautiful changing colors of the trees will mark the season. The Department of Natural Resources has posted a “Leaf Cam” on its Web site. The “Leaf Cam” shoots still photographs of various forested sites around Indiana and refreshes every 15 minutes. Viewers can watch for the peak color changes of fall in the coming weeks. The locations of the cameras are Hilltop Cabins in Brown County, Conner Prairie in Noblesville, French Lick Resort, The Fort Golf Course in Lawrence, Lafayette Municipal Golf Course, and Spring Mill State Park.
The Web site is cosponsored by the Indiana Office of Tourism Development and also features an interactive travel guide, listing campgrounds, festivals, restaurants, contests, and other information. Interactive maps of Indiana are also available on the site.
