Indiana's mild autumn has produced an unusual late display of colorful foliage, with many trees still hanging onto their leaves into late November.

Leaves typically turn early after years with a hot, dry summer but the opposite happened after this year's summer-long drought.

Sam Carman is the education director for the Indiana Department of Natural Resources' Division of Forestry. He says it's been a very unusual year in terms of fall colors.

Carman says that Indiana's trees should be pretty well bare by now.

The National Weather Service in Indianapolis has recorded warmer average temperatures for most of this fall, but below-average temps for November thus far.
