“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower,” said Albert Camus, the French author and philosopher.

Who knew the writer best known for horror, including novels such as “The Plague,” and as a founder of existentialism, also loved autumn’s colors?

Who can blame the man?

Now an online map makes it easier for fall enthusiasts to chase the changing leaves.

The 2018 Fall Foliage prediction map covers the entire United States using information from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The map was created by Smokymountains.com, a website dedicated to promoting tourism in the Smoky Mountains.

The changing color of leaves is primarily because of sunlight, not temperature, so the autumnal changes are relatively consistent. The map, of course, isn’t perfect, and like all easily digestible things should be taken with a grain of salt.

Still, it’s a cool visual representation of what we’ll all soon be seeing out of our windows. To see the map visit: smokymountains.com/fall-foliage-map.
