Interactive Map Traces Minnesota’s Fall Colors
ST. PAUL -- Sightseers can once again use an interactive map for planning their fall color road trips in Minnesota.
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources' Fall Color Finder shows the progression of red, gold and orange across the state.
The map is based on observations from all 75 of Minnesota's state parks and recreation areas. The map will be updated each week with where to find the best visuals.
Travelers may be in for a good show this year.
Erika Rivers, director of Minnesota state parks and trails, says the DNR's forest health specialists say there has been enough rain around the state to "keep things green and healthy, which is the first building block for great fall color."
