Leaf View:  Online Fall Foliage Maps

Travelers searching for the best fall colors can access fall foliage maps on The Weather Channel Web page.  Maps are divided in nine regions, showing peak times or users can click on an individual state from the list.  The maps are updated daily and list conditions as patchy, near peak, peak, and past peak.  Most of the maps currently show no change:  “Only occasional patches of color, not fully developed.  The predominant color is still green.” 

The Brown County Indiana “Leaf Cam” is also now available online.  The camera is mounted high above one of the overlooks of the county so viewers can watch the changing of the leaves.  Typically the peak time for change in Brown County is the second or third week of October, but weather affects the times of the changing colors.
