Photos show scenic fall foliage in Texas State Parks

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

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has released pictures of fall foliage in Texas State Parks, and the sights are quite scenic.

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

Travelers wanting to catch a glimpse of the fall leaves at Texas State Parks should plan ahead, as some of the most popular destinations tend to sell out quickly for overnight camping or day use.

People in South and Southeast Texas still have a few days before those areas reach “peak” or “near peak” fall foliage, though parts of the Panhandle and North Texas hit that stage a few weeks ago.

A fall foliage forecast map from SmokyMountains.com shows that “high season” should arrive in central Texas on Monday. Next week the coastal areas should be in “near peak season”, as the map shows.

According to SmokyMountains.com, a travel website, the map was created to help travelers plan their vacations.

“While no tool can be 100% accurate, this tool is designed to help travelers better plan their trips to have the best opportunity to capture top colors each year,” the website states.
