Good Question:Since every year is different when will be a good time to visit Slade to see the beautiful leaves?

This time of year Kentucky is bursting with the colors of red, yellow and orange as trees across the state change color for the fall.

When squirrels can be seen packing away for winter, and colors like orange, reds and yellows start to emerge you know fall is here.

At Holly Hill Inn outside Versailles the colors are in full swing, and that's the case is most places across the state.

" I was just down at Lake Cumberland this past weekend, peak down there. On the way down there I saw peak season of about 90% and 100%," said Pat Stipes.

Stipes is with the Kentucky Department of Tourism.

He knows how much people love taking in the fall colors in Kentucky, in fact, his office makes sure people know just where to go.

The Kentucky Department of Tourism provides a website within its own site called Color Fall.

Recently uploaded photos from people across the state let you know where to go.

For 25 years the Color Fall page has helped people plan out their leaf viewing trips.

The page is updated twice a day by state naturalists, it lists all of the regions and gives updates on just what is happening color wise in that particular area.

As for the rest of the state, Stipes says it won't be long until these brilliant colors a
are everywhere.

" I think we are about a week away from statewide seeing peak season," said Stipes.

A check of the color fall page says Natural Bridge State Park in Slade says leaves there are in full peak season right now.
