SUMMARY: Find out when to travel to photograph the peak times of fall foliage around the country.
Autumn is an exciting time for travel and nature photographers, as it brings beautiful orange, brown, and red leaf colors. If you plan on traveling to take advantage of nature's yearly show, you need to ensure you get to your destination at the peak period to enjoy the fall foliage.
If you live in the USA, the US Department of Agriculture has a website that displays fall foliage information by geographical area. This way you can better plan your trip - when is the best time to visit New England, the Appalachians, the Rockies, or wherever. Information is updated as soon as conditions permit.
If you are not in the US or do not plan to travel to the US, check with your country's forestry or agriculture department website to see if such information is available.
