CHARLESTON, West Virginia (September 16, 2016) –Wild, Wonderful West Virginia–in collaboration with West Virginia State Parks and tourism industry partners–will launch #MyWV Fall Color a web-based, user-generated platform to showcase fall foliage in the Mountain State. West Virginians and visitors are encouraged to share their fall foliage photos at GoToWV.com/leaves.

“Fall is such a special time of year filled with harvest festivals and brilliant hues of red, yellow and orange. You’ll find leaf peepers from near and far taking to our scenic back roads and exploring the Mountain State’s natural beauty,” Commissioner of Tourism Amy Shuler Goodwin said. “We encourage folks to share photos of fall color in realtime at GoToWV.com/leaves or with #MyWV on social media.”

In addition to providing current fall color photos and webcam links, GoToWV.com/fallcolor will provide relevant content and information about “When and Where to Visit,” which will be updated weekly, beginning Thursday, September 29, 2016.  Folks will also be able to access the “When and Where to Visit” by calling 1-800-CALL-WVA beginning on the same day.
