ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -

It's officially starting to feel like autumn, with crisp, cool temperatures forcing us to pull out the long sleeves and leaves changing color, setting the bluffs of southeast Minnesota ablaze with reds, oranges and yellows.

According to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Fall Color Finder, much of our area is at 25-50 percent of peak color, which will make for some great views for the weekend.

We decided to take a step back in time to see what it looked like 30 years ago with the video above from the NewsCenter Archives shot by Chief Photographer Chuck Sibley. As you can see, the leaves put on a spectacular show in 1985. Sibley's son, Andy, who was 4 years old at the time, sure enjoyed the weather as he tossed rocks into the river!

If you capture the colors of fall on camera this year, we'd love to see your photos. Pictures can be emailed to share@kttc.com, or posted to our Facebook page, and you just might see them in our Signs of Fall Slideshow!
