UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News) Fall colors are starting to make their presence in Wisconsin – and the state’s tourism Web site has started to post its Fall Color Report which shows you the prettiest views. You’ll find an interactive map at Travel Wisconsin-Dot-com. It lists the color peaks for over 100 communities – plus lists of local events, scenic drives, and more. Eau Claire, Hayward, and Beaver Dam are already at 10-percent of their fall color peaks.
D-N-R officials say the dry July and August has resulted in many leaves dying out and changing colors early. About a dozen other places report peaks at five-percent – including Milwaukee, Beloit, Wausau, Richland Center, and Rhinelander.
The Fall Color Report can be accessed on computers, smartphones, and tablets. You can also have the report e-mailed each Thursday, so you can make plans for your fall weekends.
