One of the great joys of autumn is watching the trees turn brilliant colors. The Great Smokey Mountains National Park has an interactive map to help you plan your autumn road trips to coincide with the peak fall foliage in the 48 contiguous states. Use the slider at the site to check for the area of peak colors for every weekend. Scroll down on the page to find out more about the colors of fall. According to the map, during the week of October 21st, I will drive past a mountain and decide that this is the year I make a landscape quilt of the fall colors. I’ve been saying that for at least 25 years. Then a November rainstorm will bring all those leaves down, and I’ll be distracted by other holiday plans. -via mental_floss
