Fall is on its way in Maine. I took these 2 weeks ago (or is it 3 now?) in Acadia. When I get to them, I'll have some more dramatic photos from last week in the Whites, though it was also just starting there. We are headed north in a week and should start seeing some serious color.
Wow! I couldn't help a few shivers as I saw the ledge. Very dramatic. Is that you and your husband in the photo?
And the tree is lovely, a nice flame color. We don't have anything that intense here yet...but I'm anxious and waiting.
Thanks for sharing.
Yes, that’s my husband on the very aptly-named Precipice Trail in Acadia! It was kind of a monkey-gym for grown-ups . He managed the whole thing with his poles in hand (or hanging from his wrists), but I stowed mine in my pack to keep them out of my way.

hikerchick395, lovely distance photos. I like the path of the evergreens in the first, as if they're marching up to the summit. In the second photo, I especially like the softness of the foreground vs. the rugged mountains in the back.
Deborah , lovely, and nicely balanced photo with the border trees softened by the soft glow of the aspens, and the aspens themselves highlighted by the evergreens in the background.
We don’t get a lot of color here, but what we do is usually red leaves on the poison oak as it wraps around the base of the redwoods. Still, as I drove home today after work, the sun broke through the clouds and highlighted a bit of gold.
