arkansas leaves changing

Howdy Halls, I live about 20 miles west of Ft. Smith,Ark. in eastern Oklahoma and around here it seems like mid to late October is when things change. It depends on how cool the nights get, course sometimes they turn brown and fall off in August or Sept., but so far this summer hasn't been too bad. You might call 800-628-8725, that's Ark. tourism office. DB
