Ten Towns for Fall Color

From the October 11th Yahoo! travel "Ten Fantastic Towns for Fall Color" by Christine Sarkis.

The past several days, we have been out looking for fall color around northeast Illinois and yesterday we drove around Geneva Lake, Wisconsin, looking for it. That would be the town of Lake Geneva. Our conclusion is that there is some color, but peak foliage should be next week.

JIM THORPE, PA.-- In the Poconos. Peak Oct. 12th.
SEDONA, AZ-- 2 hours north of Phoenix. Peak mid-October.

STOCKHOLM, WIS.-- On the Mississippi River, 70 miles from Minneapolis. Peak mid-October.
WOODSTOCK, VT.-- Peak Oct. 1st to 15th.

JASPER, ARK.-- Ozarks. Peak Oct. 15th to Nov. 15th.
HOOD RIVER, OR.-- Columbia River Gorge. Peak early to mid-October.

STOCKBRIDGE, MASS.-- Norman Rockwell called it the "Best of New England." October.
FAYETTEVILLE, WV-- Late October.

MUNISING, MI.-- Upper Peninsula. Peak late September to mid-October.
JULIAN, CA.-- An hour from San Diego. Peak September to October.
