Fall is by far my favorite season. I live for the fresh air, the fresh smoky smell of the air and the beautiful colors of nature. They really feed my soul. Even when I swim in a pool or lie on the beach on a hot summer day, I dream of fall.
I was fortunate enough to have traveled to Vermont and Colorado in the fall and believe me these two places have some breathtaking fall foliage. People travel all over the world to see the beauty of fall that covers parts of the United States. I had a sister-in-law who was traveling from Brussels, Belgium to see the beauty of FAll which we take for granted.
While I enjoyed the fall grandeur of other states, there is just something about fall in the Midwest and especially the Tristate. Maybe it’s because I grew up in rural Indiana and now live in Kentucky.
I think it’s the bonfires, the high school football games, the inspired fall festivals and the exceptional and breathtaking views from all angles of southern Indiana, western Kentucky and the south. from Illinois. We are so lucky to live in a place, on this earth, with so many amazing landscapes to celebrate fall.
My favorite time of year is almost here! Oranges, yellows, reds, purples and browns prepare for POP. What will fall foliage look like? Will it be boring and quick? Or, will it be vibrant and persistent for a while?
Well I have looked at the 2021 fall foliage forecast map and this is what we can expect.
It looks like between October 18 and November 1, we should be at our peak. Granted, this is only a forecast, but it is determined by the expected daytime and nighttime temperatures in September, October, and November. With that in mind, we should see some exceptional foliage.
