Autumn road trips: color in the mountains

Maine-oxford-county-foliage
We’re almost at my favorite time of year for road trips: autumn, when nature’s scenery is spectacular. I’m planning a trip to North Carolina, including a drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway to see the fall color. How about you?

To help you choose your route, The Miami Herald has a few articles for you. Click here for a story about New Hampshire, here for a story about Maine, and here for an article about the lodges in Georgia’s state parks.

If none of those fits the bill, here’s some help: a list of websites and phone numbers where you can find information about fall foliage. Some of these sites or phone lines might not be up and running yet, so bookmark this site for later.
