fall-foliage-prediction-map-changing-of-the-leaves

Nothing says fall quite like throwing on a sweater, rolling down the windows and taking the car out for a spin through the hills where the leaves are changing color. This interactive map makes planning a drive, hike or bike to see the fall foliage in its full glory throughout different parts of the U.S. very easy.

The Ultimate Smoky Mountains Guide put the useful tool together which is great for travel planning but it’s also just fun to see when it’s really going to look like autumn in your area. Simply slide the timeline and the map changes color according to how much the leaves will change color.

The site also includes cool info on autumn leaves in general, like why some leaves turn orange and others turn red or yellow.
