Default Fall Photo

I saw this photo on the SF gate website and it just makes me think of fall.

Where I live we don't have the changing of the colors, things go from green to dead! I love the fall and enjoy being in the mountains of TN or GA during that time. It's beautiful.

It is one of the things I miss about New England, the spectacular foliage season.

I don't think we're gunna have Fall in Portland this year. It's just sunny and warm to hot every day.

Which is a shame -- because Fall is my favorite season of the year!

There are some trees in my area that change. I live on the edge of a very large park and it is full of trees.

The leaves have started to turn, but the are not as spectacular as usual. I think it is because of the warm temps we have had lately - it just isn't getting cool enough at night to make them truly vibrant.

I'm 75 miles north of NYC. We are starting to turn here already.

Looks like it might be a good color year.

Our peak week here is always the week of October 15th. I know this for sure because it is the week after my anniversary. We were hoping for the best colors for the photos, but we were a week early. I have noticed every year since (20 years now) that the week of the 15 - 17 is the peak in my area.

I took this photo at a campground we go to in northern Georgia. It's beautiful there in the fall. This is a trout pond, although you can't fish from it.








This is the campground with the beautiful colors.

Leaves are changing big time here in Two Rivers, and falling, too! Soon the raking will begin!

I'm curious where in Illinois, as I always saw leaves changing, pretty trees, etc.
