Many areas in the state are registering fall leaves at 50 or percent or more towards peak colors.
Tree leaf colors typically peak by early October in northern and central Minnesota and by mid-October in the southern part of the state.
In the Fridleye area, there will be plenty of areas for viewing the changing colors including the Springbrook Nature Center.
addition to the weekly online reports, the DNR offers fall colors “to
go” on a mobile website compatible with smart phones and tablets.
These reports include percent of color change, integrated with Google maps.
The DNR is predicting a “brilliant” fall colors season.
