Forest colors

So over the last couple of weeks, since the kids and I took a walk in Russell E. Emmenegger Nature Park, I’ve been keeping my eyes on the changing color of the leaves and I must say, so far there’s been little change. Then the other day I came across this somewhat older article entitled “Why Fall Colors Are Different in U.S. and Europe” by Andrea Thompson over at Live Science.

What I actually found most interesting are the reasons behind why the colors are different. How the ice ages, as well as the (you guessed it), the migration of plants and animals played a role in all of this.

Enjoy!
