I am unabashedly #TeamAutumn. Crisp air, cozy sweaters, apple picking, and best of all, fall foliage. If you're also excitedly awaiting the yearly color show, this interactive map will show you when your area will be awash in reds, yellows, and oranges.

Released by Smoky Mountains National Park, the tool is an estimate on when they're expecting peak peeping to happen across the United States. So if you're planning a trip to Vermont, make sure to get there by the end of September/early October, or it might be past peak.

The site also has fun info on the science behind why leaves change color, plus coloring pages for the kiddos.

Now, where's my cozy sweater?
