Here Are The Best Times And Places To View Fall Foliage In Louisiana
With Labor Day behind us, it’s time to start looking forward to the cooler days of autumn. Believe it or not, Louisiana does have some beautiful fall foliage, you just need to know when and where to look. The folks over at the Smoky Mountains have predicted when each state will see their peak fall foliage.
The prediction map at the Smoky Mountains webpage is an interactive map that allows you to see when each state will see those beautiful fall colors we all know and love.
The picture above depicts the country for September 3rd. Clearly, Louisiana is going to have to wait a few weeks before we start seeing those orange and gold hues.
Around October 1st, Louisiana will begin to see some changes, though it'll be pretty minimal.
We don't tend so see cooler temperatures until mid-to-late October.
Then, around October 15th, we'll start to see more and more trees turning, getting close to their peak.
At the end of October, after most of the rest of the country is past their peak, Louisiana will be in peak fall foliage.
And you'll be able to capture perfect moments like this floating camp on the Ouachita River in Union Parish.
And the lakes, especially in Northern LA, will be absolutely gorgeous for kayaking and canoeing.
