Oklahoma isn’t exactly known for its autumnal weather. Okies aren’t usually donning puffy vests or boots until mid-November. But even though its fall season is short, often lasting only a few weeks, the leaves on its trees still break down their chlorophyll, which causes the changes in color, before falling off for winter. The best places to view the state’s kaleidoscope of foliage are in its state parks and around its lakes and rivers.
