Fall is officially upon us. John Blake submitted this close-up from Houghton, Mich., where he found early fall colors against an extended summer green.
Want to make the most of the fall foliage? U.S. Forest Service has made it easier than ever to plan your best and brightest fall colors trip. They’ve launched an online map that shows where tree colors are peaking in your state and how to find a national forest near you. They also have a Fall Colors Hotline (800-354-4595) with updates on the best places, dates and routes to take for peak viewing.
Comment and let us know your favorite spot to take in the autumn leaves. And send your favorite fall foliage photo (high-res please) to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We could feature your photo next!
