I’ve seen some spectacular photos of autumn color this year in northern parts of the United States as well as in higher elevations in the Southern Appalachians. If you are interested in going on a leaf-peeping trip, here are some sources of information about where the color is at peak. If you go, drive carefully since there are likely to be a lot of other slow drivers too!
