The Department of Natural Resources launched its Fall Color Finder website for the season Thursday.  Tourism officials launched a similar website for Wisconsin.

People in parts of the Northland have already been seeing leaves change color for a few weeks. The website offers specific tips on where to go to get the best view of the changing leaves.

As a general rule, the DNR says, colors typically peak between mid-September and early October in the northern third of Minnesota, between late September and early October in the central third of the state, and between late September and mid-October in the southern third.
