Fall Foliage Maps

As Summer is turning to Fall so are the leaves changing from green to the multi-hues we know and love. Many people; including my grandparents once, go on tours to see the leaves in beautiful locations.

Now it is possible to know where the leaves are changing colors. Map Room Blog links to a CNN interactive map that depicts when leaves change colors. It is clear that elevation as well as latitude affect when leaves turn. The northern, Rocky Mountain-part of New Mexico has leaves which go multicolored as soon as September.

On Google Earth it is possible to obtain updates of leaf color in the United Kingdom. It is always fun to obtain free upgrades for Google Earth and leaf color .kmls are no different.
