Connecticut's landscape has become the canvas on which Mother Nature has painted a brilliant picture with hues of red, orange and yellow.
And now through the end of October is the peak time to soak in the beauty of our state's fall foliage.
An interactive map created by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection shows that the majority of the state is experiencing peak foliage Oct. 16 through Oct. 23, especially in the northern half. Coastal Connecticut is still at moderate to low foliage levels, but that will change toward the end of the month.
That may be a matter of personal taste, depending on whether you want to hike or drive, but no matter how you want to travel, the DEEP can help point you in the right direction — and they have some great tips, too.
