Go Where the Wild Colors Are

The factors that influence fall leaf color are shorter day lengths, weather, and changing levels of leaf pigments. The only constant factor from year to year is the shortening day length. As days become shorter and nights grow longer, biochemical processes in the leaf initiate changing leaf color. All the other factors vary annually, making the prediction of fall color peak difficult. Weather conditions so far this fall have not been perfect for optimum fall colors. The best time to view the fall colors in the Ozark-St. Francis National Forests is usually late October to early November.
