SAN ANTONIO – The “peak” fall foliage season has finally reached the Lone Star State.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has been posting pictures of fall foliage at Texas State Parks, and the sights are quite picturesque.

Shades of orange, red and yellow are covering parks across the state, including Inks Lake, Lost Maples, Blanco, Dinosaur Valley and Tyler State Parks.

People in South and Southeast Texas have a few more days until those areas reach “peak” or “near peak” fall foliage, though parts of the Panhandle and North Texas reached that phase a couple of weeks ago.

A fall foliage prediction map from SmokyMountains.com shows that the “peak” season in Central Texas should arrive by Monday. Next week, the coastal areas should be in “near peak” season, the map shows.

SmokyMountains.com, which is a travel website, says the map was made to help travelers plan their vacations.

“While no tool can be 100% accurate, this tool is meant to help travelers better time their trips to have the best opportunity of catching peak color each year,” the website says.
