Across America and Canada right now Fall Foliage is underway.
A time when trees change colour as Autumn moves in and brilliant golds, yellows, reds, browns, bronzes, greens and oranges colour the leaves in the forests.
As a New Zealander driving across the US and Canada this time last year it was simply spectacular. I have never seen anything like it.
Here in New Zealand we do get some fall foliage – I’ve mostly seen it around Arrowtown, Christchurch, Hawkes Bay and Gisborne – but certainly nothing like what I saw in eastern parts of America and Canada.
See my photos below from my road trip last year – and to see current images from America check out weather.com’s Fall Foliage gallery.
