    Where are your favorite places to tour in the autumn?

    Like driving around and seeing the autumn colors, or just sitting in your local park to absorb the atmosphere?  What areas do you think are so beautiful in the fall? (Photo credit: Pixabay Public Domain, Autumn, Park, Victoria Australia)

    Logan Canyon, UT and Grey's River, WY.  If you can still get into Yellowstone, it is pretty amazing too.  It's snowing there today though, haha.

      Hi Herban. Thanks for contributing. Snowing, huh? Seems early for that.

      Nah, we get snow in September pretty regularly.  It doesn't stick, it just gets cold.

      I believe Yellowstone was the first of the American nation parks. I may go there some day.

      It is definitely something everyone should get to see in their life time.  Pictures, even the really good ones, don't give you a sense of the place.  It's hard to grasp how vast it is.

    It may sound daft to some but the seaside was always one of my favourite autumn places as a child. That could have a lot to do with Blackpool's Illuminations being on. Those lights still draw me there today.

      Hi brutishspoon. I love the seaside any time of the year. I never heard of Blackpool Illumination. Where is that?

      In the UK. Its on our west coast and it is often a very cold and wet place with large waves that can batter the sea front. But the lights they have along the prom make a trip there in late September to late October worthwhile.

      That sounds lovely. I like to watch the waves when they come in like that. Santa Cruz, California is one of my favorite places to spend a day to listen to and watch the Pacific Ocean crash against the rocks further north up the coast.

    Pretty much anywhere with beautiful leaves is great for me. Sometimes taking a scenic drive through the mountains, sometimes just sitting on a park bench, or taking a hike through the forests. That time is coming soon!

      Me, too. I love the fall colors. Yes, it sure is coming up, and soon. Thanks, Faceless39.

    It is actually spring in my country right now rather than autumn but I'll answer the question. In the Blue Mountains in New South Wales, Australia there are fantastic bush land walks, artist and writer haunts and retreats, and lots of native wildlife to be seen. Bush walking is best done in either spring or autumn. You don't want it too hot or too freezing cold. I love to visit Norman Lindsay's home. He was the creator of the children's book The Magic Pudding. He may have been born in Victoria but he did a lot of his more powerful and astonishing work in the Blue Mountains. Yes, he is famous for his female nudes as much as anything else and the elements of myth and fantasy in his paintings. Going to his home is such an inspiration. Shown in the photo is one of the statues to be found at Norman Lindsay's residence.

      Hi Rod. Thanks for the info on Norman Lindsay and the photo. The Bush walk sounds wonderful.
