SAN ANTONIO – The “peak” fall foliage season has finally hit the Lone Star State.
The Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife has released photos of fall foliage at Texas state parks, and the sites 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 looking to catch a glimpse of the fall foliage at Texas state parks may want to plan ahead, as some of the more popular destinations tend to sell out quickly for overnight or day camping.

Residents of South and Southeast Texas still have a few days until these areas reach “peak” or “near-peak” fall foliage, although parts of the Panhandle and North Texas have reached this phase a few weeks ago.
A fall foliage prediction map of SmokyMountains.com shows that the “peak” season in central Texas is expected to arrive by Monday. Next week, coastal areas are expected to be in “near peak” season, the map says.
SmokyMountains.com, which is a travel website, says the map was designed to help travelers plan their vacations.
“While no tool can be 100% accurate, this tool is intended to help travelers better plan their trips to have the best opportunity to catch maximum color each year,” the website states.
