Greetings....

I remember driving thru Qu'Appelle Valley, Saskatchewan in the fall during the middle 70's. The picture in this link doesn't begin to do it justice, but it was the best one I was able to find. The awesome beauty of this magnificent place has stayed with me for more than 30 years.

Many Blessings...Franco

Tahiti, I don't mind... Was able to drive up Route 7 in MA one Fall and I've been pining away (pun intended) for a a return trip with my wife!

BOT: I've always thought SW VA (or ANYWHERE in the Old Dominion) was beautiful with Fall colors.

One of the most beautiful fall scenes I've ever seen was in Sedona, AZ. Clear blue sky, temperatures in the low 70s, the pinion trees dotting the red rocks-- like usual-- except the cottonwood trees by Oak Creek were all changing color. The view I had from a hiking trail overlooking the creek was amazing, a little pathway of yellow through the usual colors of green, red, and blue. Unfortunately I didn't take a picture that day. Another all-time favorite is Rocky Mountain National Park in the fall-- which occurs, early, in August!

Looks like you very nicely made a liar of me. Beautiful pics -- I don't remember ever seeing anything like that while I was living out there -- coming from the northeast, I had serious leaf-peeping withdrawal every fall. Guess I was just in the wrong part of town!
If Seattle isn't the northwest, there's no such thing as the northwest in the United States. That's like saying Maine isn't the northeast

I haven't been many other places during the fall, but Wisconsin is awesome during that time. Check out Door County...

Upstate New York. We lived in Ballston Lake NY for 2 years and I always looked forward to the fall. The trees are beautiful and the apple picking was fruitful. We live in the west coast now and the only thing I miss about where I used to live was the fall!! Vermont is right next door to us and the drive there isa bsolutely breakth taking.

I lived in Texas for a two years and this was one of the biggest things I missed...the fall season. I am originally from New York, which has beautiful autumns. In Texas, it was "summer" or "not summer".
