If you want to check out the fall colors, the DNR says that some trees have begun to turn colors early due to this year's drought.

The DNR says that most of the state is less than 10 percent of their peak colors.  Officials say that severe drought usually dulls colors and causes premature leaf shedding. Minnesota's trees will likely will be filled with more subtle colors of tan, bronze and auburn this fall.

The DNR is suggesting a visit to the prairie this fall. They say to "let the lemons make lemonade! Head to the prairie to see beautiful native grasses that resist drought with their deep roots."
