FALL FOLIAGE TOUR

A clear advantage of living in the northeastern US is being able to enjoy four seasons. Spring holds the most beauty when it comes to trees and shrubs blooming, but it's Fall that presents that special combination of colorful fall foliage and crisp air, all set against an awesome blue 'football season' sky.

Fall foliage tours in 2005 presented some of the most beautiful autumn weather in recent memory. Dry weather, accented by sunny skies and mild temperatures, created the perfect scenario for any fall foliage tour. Our preferred touring vehicle? ...a motorcycle of course! 
 


This webpage began with photos taken in Autumn 2005. This fall foliage photo collection continues to grow!

Fall in the northeastern United States is perhaps the prettiest season of the year. Colors in leaves that have been masked by green chlorophyll since Spring finally show their true colors. Afternoon sun really lights up the color in this White Oak's fall foliage:
