We like drone videos, and we also like Minnesota's awesome fall colors.

So when we saw this one by YouTube user colifis, we had to share it. It's 4 minutes, 35 seconds of the state at its most colorful – and some of the shots are filled with trees that look like stunning Bob Ross paintings.

Colifis has a bunch of cool drone videos on YouTube – check them out here.

If you're a big fan of leaf peeping (which yes, is a real term), we've got bad news: Minnesota is about done with its fall colors.

The DNR's Fall Color Finder shows almost the entire state is past its peak. A few areas in the southern third of Minnesota – specifically the state parks Beaver Creek Valley, Afton, Flandrau, Forestville/Mystery Cave, and Blue Mound – are in the 75-100 percent range, but likely won't be for much longer.
