Throughout most of the U.S. the “colors of fall” are peaking this weekend. Last month, The Green Register published an edition of The Green Minute dedicated to helping people find fall foliage at its peak. To help our “leaf peeper” Green Register readers enjoy this upcoming weekend, we are republishing the very popular September 28th Green Minute about “The Colors of Fall.”
About four years ago, I was attending a conference near the Appalachian Trail in New Hampshire during the last week of September. As a lifelong southerner, who had never traveled to New England in the fall, I was swept off my feet, in awe of the stunning colors, the changing fall leaves.
I could see why there were actual tours for “leaf peepers.” Every year since that New England trip I have yearned to go back.
If you have fallen in love with “fall colors” like I have, the U.S. Forest Service has set up a Fall Foliage Hotline at 1-800-354-4595 to help people “time” their visits to see the colors at their peak. There are state-by-state descriptions to help the “beginner leaf peeper.” And there are even webcams that take you to places throughout the country where the leaves are changing.
Check out the U.S. Forest Service’s Fall Color 2012 video preparing people for the Fall season:
