Went out today in search of colorful leaves. Thought maybe there has been enough rain (what was I thinking? ) to actually have a chance at some decent color by now. Maybe next week...

Funny you should mention that, Benny. I saw a Foliage Forecast today. They talked about the Blue Ridge Parkway, lack of precip, elevations for best viewing (over 5K ft.), and more.

So I did a search and found weather.com has one. Let me know what you think.

P.S. I still like your pics. :)

We went out leaf peeping today too. Found some great back roads to explore, but still at least a week early for peak color.

What a difference a week makes...and Southern New England fall color should be outstanding for at least another week.

Great shots! Hope to be out there this week-end taking some pics of the trees around my area. What a great time of the year to take pics.

Allegheny Mountains at Sunrise, Claysburg, PA

The wife and I were on our way to Gettysburg Saturday morning on I99 South between Altoona and Bedford,PA when the sun broke through the clouds revealing a spectacular scenic view. I99(US220) is one of the most scenic interstate highways in PA.

Wow...all of the photos are beautiful!

Today the high today is around 50 here in OK, the coldest day yet! So we still have mostly greens.

Found this article on Yahoo.

Thanks all for the lovely photos. I have lots of new desktop images.

I drove through the Scranton, PA area 3 weeks ago and saw the colors just beginning. They were vivid then but patchy color. Now...well...WOW!!

Yes, and Dwight asked me out. Seems he's getting over Angela.

The weather folks here have been talking about "subdued color" because of the drought. The various maples are still putting on a good show - one drive we took yesterday was spectacular - but everything else is just turning a dingy brown. Blah.

Rather than start a new thread for the same reason, I figured I would resurrect this one from the dead.

Todays adventure looking for the colorful leaves.

Blue Ridge Parkway, just south of Price Park.


Blue Ridge Parkway, just north of Mount Mitchell







NC 80 pretty much in the middle of nowhere.
