Autumn explodes with brilliant color schemes

Lake Geneva, Wisconsin
It's the season when we start thinking of fall color--and all the great places that celebrate with a bounty of gorgeous landscapes. Pick your favorite destination and go, even if it's just a day trip. Or plan a road trip that includes several autumn masterpieces.

Autumn is one of the most beautiful times to travel. The weather has cooled from summer’s triple digits (if you’re in the South), and landscapes are bathed in brilliant colors. Not only are tree leaves turning red, yellow, and orange but harvest time brings a cornucopia of brightly colored produce to farmer’s markets and our tables.

Even if the area where you live barely registers four seasons, you can still enjoy splendid natural landscapes.  These photos by Larry and Beverly Burmeier are intended to whet your appetite for more fall scenery, so enjoy—and then go find your own glorious views.

Of course, the east coast has splendid displays that draw in leaf-peepers every fall. But you can find plenty of color in mid-west and western states, too.
