Well, we’re right in the middle of it out here in the Pacific Northwest – fall, that is! Some of the trees still have lots of green on them, while others are about done (especially in the mountains), but there are loads of trees at their peak all around the Seattle area. And they’re beautiful!

While I haven’t had much time to get out and shoot this season, I thought I’d dig through the archives and find some autumn images from years past. I still haven’t “done” fall in New England yet (darn it!), but there’s plenty to see out here as well.

One of my favorite hikes for fall color is the Maple Pass Loop trail in the North Cascades. It’s too late in the season to go now, but at its peak it is truly a gem. It’s a great day-hike off the scenic North Cascades Highway, although if you’re going to drive that far you may as well camp somewhere and spend a couple of days in the area.

Another great place for fall color is the Canadian Rockies, especially if you’re looking for the golden larches that photographers love so much.

So I’ll keep it short this week – lots going on that I’ll be writing about soon. But if you’re lucky enough to live in an area with fall color still going strong, get out there and enjoy it before it’s too late – it won’t be around for long. And don’t forget to stay safe!
