Fall Colors Looking Great This Year in Southeast Missouri

(Farmington) It had been a few years since southeast Missouri’s fall colors have looked fantastic.

They always look good but this year…fantastic.

Mark Twain National Forest Ranger Becky Ewing has similar, descriptive terms on this fall’s outdoor colors in the Show-Me State.

And Ewing says to treat yourself in the next few days if you’ve been staying at home because of the pandemic.

You can enjoy Missouri’s fall colors almost anywhere but for spectacular vistas, choose routes along rivers with views of forested bluffs, and along ridges with sweeping scenes of forested landscapes.
