Welcome to November! The feeling of fall is in the air.
You can smell it in the air as some plants and leaves begin to decay and you can see it in the trees. We are about to hit peak fall color time in Oklahoma.
Check out the picture sent to us by Debbie Martin of Tulsa.
I scanned several websites today looking for some insight into how our fall color in Green Country was coming along.
Here are a few of the areas that sounded like they offered the best best for an Autumn drive to see nature's beauty.
Osage Hills State Park -- Better hurry to behold this beauty. It sounds like fall color is peaking just west of Bartlesville. The Maple and the vines are wearing a full wardrobe of red, oranges and purples while the Oaks are just turning.
Oologah Reservoir -- Fall color in this area appears to be slightly delayed. Just about half the trees have some color while the other half are still green. But the trees reach maximum color in this area in early November, so I bet things change rapidly.
Robbers Cave State Park -- Same goes here. Fall color is just a little bit behind schedule. Lets call it "Summer Green." Some are green. Some are colorful.
Talimena National Scenic Byway -- A favorite drive for many in Green Country. From what I could gather, about half the trees have turned, the other half should be turning shortly.
A couple other areas such as Highway 10 from Miami to Tahlequah are mostly green, and east of Tahlequah the color is lagging but still expected to come on strong within the next two weeks.

Brianna Stone went shopping at Walmart today. Perhaps a normal Sunday afternoon, except she had Officer Michael Konshak from the Bixby Police Department joining her.
