To celebrate this past Saturday's Fall Equinox, we are checking in on this year's fall foliage forecast with Dr. Howard S. Neufeld, plant eco-physiologist at Appalachian State University and leading fall foliage expert. His Fall Color Guy blog is predicting a vibrant autumn, especially compared to last year's disappointing display.
This week we look at two free mobile apps that can help us enjoy this year's visual offerings.
Foliage Leaf Peepr gives you a map of where leaves are beginning to turn and tells you the current stage of the leaves.
Oh, Ranger! lets you search for parks near you and gives you a report on activities at each park.
