One of the best things about fall foliage is that you can see it from anywhere: from your window, in the car, walking around downtown. Our Twitter follower @FlockeSnowflake tweeted us this picture and said, "#CoMoFall is beautiful." We agree. She also added: "Fall is definitely my favorite season in MO!" and said this picture was taken near Old 63 and Grindstone.

COLUMBIA — Columbia's fall colors are slowly fading. According to the Missouri Department of Conservation's website, the last weeks of October are when leaves will start dropping from the trees.

Before you break out those winter coats and snow boots, take a look back at some of the foliage the Columbia Missourian readers found around town. Trust us, it will make you wish the autumnal foliage could stick around.

Just can't get enough? Check out the rest of our pictures from the community, and some we took ourselves, in our "CoMoFall" Facebook album

Twitter user @MeredithBaldwin tweeted us this picture and said: "Here's another one from #Mizzou this morning!" The dark and the light played out beautifully in this one.
Avid photographer John Hall, our frequent contributor, found this sight on Burr Oak Road. To see more of John's photos for MyMissourian, check here:
Dennis Smarr posted this vibrant photo of the fall colors at Eagle Bluffs near McBaine on our Facebook wall. Love how the "layers" of color come out in this picture.
