Outdoorspeople, in particular, decry our modern dependence on technology and electronics.

But when autumn in the Northland can last as few as six weeks, you don't have a lot of time to waste.

Enter the Minnesota DNR's Fall Color Finder, a mobile-friendly website to show you maps of the best colors, the parks with the best colors near you, and even a subscription service that will send you a text or email update for the skinny on the best places to leaf-peep.

An added bonus this year?  All the rain means many of the waterfalls will also be at their photogenic best right now!
