Does the PNW have nice fall foliage? I know the northeast is knows for some of the worlds best foliage but what about the PNW? Are there too many pine trees for great foliage or is it just overlooked? Anyone have any picuters of the area during fall?

The foliage here is very nice on some years. Other years, not so much. Really depends as the seasons in the PNW aren't quite as distinct as the northeast. Also depends if you're at an urban area or not since people do plant non-native trees those areas. Another factor is elevation/rainfall and which trees are found at each. Many variations compared to other parts of the country.

The simple answer is yes, in general, there are too many evergreens to really get the kind of autumn colors you find in other parts of the country.

My neighborhood is always pretty gorgeous in the fall. I live in the Fremont/Queen Anne area of Seattle that is FULL of foliage trees that turn to bright reds, oranges and yellows. One of my favorite sites in the fall is to go onto the Fremont Bridge (on the side closer to Ballard) and take in the view of the GORGEOUS foliage along the Burke-Gilman trail. Breathtaking!
