Where to go: FINAL REPORT FOR THE 2013 SEASON. Overall leaf color is now past peak although a lot of trees still have plenty of leaves on them, especially along Highway 61. These leaves will probably only last a few more days or perhaps through the coming weekend. Tamarack trees (the only deciduous conifer tree to change color and lose its needles) will soon be turning golden orange and are the last bit of fall color we experience.Last updated: October 16, 2013
Canít decide between a one-day or year-round park permit? The DNR has a special offer that can help. Start by purchasing a one-day permit for $5 and visit as many state parks as possible. After visiting the state parks, trade in the one-day permit by the end of that day and get $5 off the purchase of a year-round permit. Year-round permits, which cost $25, provide unlimited access to all 76 Minnesota state parks and recreation areas for a full year from the month of purchase.
