Talimena Drive

Visiting 6 Oct. How are the trees on the Talimena Drive? Have they started to turn yet? Anyone suggest places to visit on our way to Wichita KS? Last year we drove the Chisholm trail (US81) but want to see other parts of OK this year. My wife ss disabled so walking is not an option.

First week in October is very early for fall colors this far south. You might have better luck if you could detour into northwestern Arkansas. They're a little higher, a little cooler, a little farther north, and their forests have more variety of trees. I don't know where you're driving from on your way to Wichita, but if you could get into the area near Harrison, Arkansas, you would have a better chance at colors.

As much rain as we have had recently, things are still very green. We will also need a good run of cool nights. It will probably be 3-4 weeks before things peak. AlCap

Thanks for your posts. We are driving from Dallas to Wichita. I guess we will go to Oklahoma City to see the Cowboy Museum and then on to the TallGrass Prairie as we must see Buffalo in large numbers.
