The transition from summer to fall can mark a painful and difficult time. No more sun, swimsuits or sandals. No more warm breezes or eating outdoors.

While the birds may leave, most of us don’t have that option.

But it isn’t all bad. There are lots of exciting things to ease us into autumn, like sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes, and boots.

And, the magnificent fall foliage is nature’s last hoorah before the inevitable drop in temperature, rain, and snow.

Autumn’s epic transformation of the leaves is so spectacular that its admirers have their own name: leaf peepers. Traditionally, peepers flock to New England to witness the change of season. However, Ohio has views to rival those of the East coast and may give leaf peepers a new destination.

The Farmer’s Almanac predicts that October 5-21 will be peak peeper season in Ohio, so now's the time to get ready for nature’s amazing show.
