Hard to believe, but already the Wasatch maples are starting to take on the hues of fall here in Utah. Which means the colorful kaleidoscope of fall cannot be far off. With that in mind, which national park is your favorite for fall leaf-peeping?
Already the landscapes in Denali National Park and Preserve are maxing out in color, while the forests that wrap Shenandoah and Great Smoky Mountains national parks and their umbilical cord that is the Blue Ridge Parkway are weeks away from their fall glory. Though I grew up an East Coaster and so am well-familiar with the dazzling displays of red, orange, yellow, green and brown that are common in those forests, there's something special about the fluttering gold of aspen that make the forests of Grand Teton, Yellowstone, and Rocky Mountain national parks dance.
So, where do you plan to be when the leaves peak in your neck of the country?
