They always will. Once it's starts getting cool up there it doesn't really ever go back. We waver back and forth. The trees don't all go at once...just whenever they want.

Photos from this weekend.

Once again this is about NorthEAST TEXAS color and what NorthEAST TEXAS has to offer. It's not a pissing contest with NC/VA. We know they have the best color in the US. This is about what TEXAS as to offer in the Fall.


10/2. 9 am, 48 degrees and crystal clear skies. It was a fantastic Fall day.

I was a little surprised to see as much change already. Seems to me, we didn't hit this level of red until mid-November. We may hit peak color in a week or two.










That's about all I got this time. My dog found something wonderfully stinky and dead to roll in...so that cut the picture walk short.

I was so busy setting up last year at this time so I'm not sure, but I think this is a little early for the color to start going. Maybe natives could be more informative.

EA, your pics remind me so much of Augusta (maybe they should bring the Masters to Tyler lol)

But for all the naysayers, East Texas is completely BEAUTIFUL the way it is. No there's no mountains, but there are certainly vistas (go to Love's Lookout in Jacksonville if you want a good view of seasonal change). And fall color doesn't really pop here, but SPRING is when it's ET's time to shine. Tyler ain't called the Rose City for nothin.

If you want vivid fall colors and mountains then just take that 4 or 5 hr drive up to Central Arkansas. Simple as that.

Oh, and by the way, ILOVENORTHCAROLINA, I'd put the beauty of Arkansas up against "your place" ANYDAY.

NC and Va are by far NOT the most beautiful fall foliage ... BY FAR. Someone needs to take a trip to Vermont, NH, and Maine late Sept. and early Oct.. It'll put anything else I've ever seen to shame and I've lived 20 miles from Smoky Mtn Nat'l Park!


I have to say there ain't much red but the aspens of the Rockies can be pretty awesome!
