Fall Foliage: 

Locations Outside of the Northeast USA



We folks in the Northeastern region of the USA might think that our neck of the woods is the only place to see fall foliage but we understand that other parts of the USA can share in the glory, also. If you can't get to Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and of course, my home state, New York, here are some other alternatives. Included are links to purchase travel guides.

Sedona has been a hot destination for quite some time. The Oak Creek Canyon would be a good locale to hike and view at the same time. Try mid-October. Click here to purchase a travel guide.



While you're in Arizona, make your way to the iconic Grand Canyon. Autumn is still popular, but the crowds may not be as tremendous as the summer. The backdrop of the gorgeous canyon to the vibrant colors of autumn promises a feast for the eyes. 



Always a popular destination with landscape photographers, Zion is a natural choice for fall leaf-peeping. The canyons' natural hues only serve to highlight the foliage.



Known for it's waterfalls, picture those flowing waters of Yosemite with the saturated colors of trees through your viewfinder. Add to that the fantastic wildlife and you have a postcard in the making.



Trail Ridge Road seems to be a hotspot to get your exercise on while taking in the breathtaking views of autumn. Watch the wildlife as you take in the atmosphere.
