Fall in Alabama unfolds a patchwork quilt of color as the greens of summer turn to glittering yellow poplars, scarlet dogwoods, orange maples and golden hickories. The blend of brilliant autumn foliage, cooler temperatures and gentle breezes defines the change in seasons in the state. Fall colors begin showing in the mountains of north Alabama in early October and then sweep across the region. Colors are at their peak from late October to early November.
