      That picture of Colorado is breathtaking! Of course, being a Charlottesville girl, I have to vote for us. This year is going to be a rough one due to no rain, but there is plenty of other places to go, things to do, and people to see once you do get to Charlottesville. Thanks for showcasing it so well. TTFN.

      New England takes the hat when it comes to color and Vermont especially, then the White Mountains and the Berkshires. Last year was the best for a long time - this year looks like being slightly early.
