Is it just me or does anyone else think we are having an exceptionally good year for fall foliage here in Vancouver? This past couple of weeks driving around the Vancouver area I've been struck by how good all the red and gold maples look.

Was last year just exceptionally dreary with all the rain? Or are we having an exceptional fall?

I agree with you. Last year I didn't even notice, but this year I find myself staring at all the colors.

We have lived in our house in Ridgefield since April 2015. This Fall the trees in our backyard are significantly more colorful than in the years previously. Our Japanese maple is much deeper in color than it has ever been before.

Lucky you. We are having very mediocre color in our part of Yankee land (New England). You must be having ideal conditions, which supposedly are "a growing season with ample moisture followed by a dry, cool and sunny autumn with warm days and cool but frostless nights."

Yeah, it seems like every time I go for a drive the leaves look even more amazing, but now the leaves are starting to look a little bare so I think we may have reached peak fall foliage.

(I'm in Nova Scotia and PEI...(73F today!)) Past peak, but still some very nice areas and variety of foliage, and NH, VT and ME still have some very fine colors. Of course there are BRIGHT COLORED homes here, in case the leaves are not bright Enough!

If in Vancouver, WA area... there are several nice areas, but I often enjoy the Central Park / Officer's Row and Burnt Bridge Creek, but it may be getting late (depends on wind / snow / rain)

Check the Fall color maps. I like The Dalles area / Eastern Columbia Gorge, as well as taking some Oregon Covered Bridge tours!

Of course Mt Angel for Octoberfest... next year...
Mt. Angel Oktoberfest 2017 | Celebration of the harvest in German Style; a wonderful blend of food, music, family and beer!
